Re: car is idiling funny Sign In

sorry i was using talk to text, and driving.
so i have messed with cars a bit and this one has me stumped . my wifes car is idling ruff jumps 5 to 10k rpm in nutrual etc. when you drive it will stutter when driving slow under 30 or when taking off high way you would not even know there was a issue.
in neutral you rev up the motoro it will not go over 5k rpms
on thing i found was the ac on pass side is leaking watter on the floor
there is only one code it reads car is not up to operating temp
i have a new temp sen.. and i didnt put it in yet but i dont see it making it run like this and i dont see this car not throwing a code?????

Re: car is idling funny Sign In

This is still confusing. Get codes read anyway as one could be pending. Now you seemed to be mentioning another car not involved? How does one matter to another?

The water on the floor with A/C is a plugged up condensate drain usually a hose underhood to let the water out get plugged or failed in some way. Some will use a flopped end and just pinching them the water will start coming out properly or can need to cut some off and some you need to clean them out,

Replace the thermostat. The engine is running too cold.

Re: car is idling funny Sign In

No, that's what's causing the P0128 and probably a lot of fuel mileage.

Leave it to me?




I'd say you could have some motor mount problems if you don't have any misfiring going on.

Re: car is idling funny Sign In

sorry about the miss text exe...

but i thought this site would help i see a lot of people giving there time to help me of all people know it sucks
being said if you had questions or any thing you could have asked me or told me what you didnt understand so i could have asked my wife to write this
regardless like i said i have been watching the obd 2 with torque pro and its been running like crap the car doesnt have plug wires it felt like a miss fire but to me being this bad would have thrown a light

even a pending code so i was about to buy wires and one spark module when i plugged it in one last time tonight it finally has a pending code for miss fire cyclender 3
thing is i drove it 1400 miles over 2 weeks not a flashing check engian light not a pending code nothing
thanks for making fun of me and making me feel like a ass next time i will remember you get what you pay for nothing is free any more

Re: car is idling funny Sign In

These guys will help. They can be a bit of jokesters at time. It keeps the mood light around here. Don't take it to heart.

What they are getting at though is one thing at a time. Fix the known problems first. These guys are mechanics so they're going to recommend exactly what they would do. Don't replace the temp sensor but replace the t-stat. That will take care of you code.

When's the last time the plugs have been replaced? It's possible it's a coil pack. Once way to verify is to swap the #3 cylinder coil pack to say the #1 cylinder. If it throws a code for the #1 cylinder you'll know it's the coil pack.

Hey Slugger,dont go getting an attitude....

Go back and try to read the crap you typed.....its a bunch of run on sentences...hard to follow....
These guys here will help the best they can but its hard when it doesnt make sense.

Why not start again,get your thoughts together, and retype your concerns,proof read it and then post it.
Have the wife type it .....
