I have a 2005 camry with a check engine light on, a dtc of PO328 for the knock sensor, sometimes runs rough at idle shortly after starting and wouldn't shift into overdrive going 55mph. I recently changed the spark plugs since the car just rolled over 100k, I check the plugs and found one of them loose, retorqued all of them, cleared the dtc, started the engine and the check engine light comes back on. Any help would be much appreciated!

I have a 2004 Kia Optima 4-cyl w/AT. I was driving about an hour ago. The car was running fine and I made a left turn. All at once the car started running rough. Then the check engine light came on, but would go off if I left off the gas (although the engine still ran rough). A minute or so later I stopped at a stop sign. I turned the car off and cranked it up again. Still ran rough, and now the light stays on. Could this be a simple fix? About 64,000 miles on the car.

I have a 2001 Ford Escort. It was idling rough and starting to cut out when sitting at stop lights. I changed the plugs and within a week the Check Engine light came on. It is still idling rough but not cutting out. It runs fine on the highway, no hesitation. I had it checked and they said the cylinder 3 is misfiring. I have had the injection system cleaned, put on a new PCV sensor and put new plugs and wires on. Also I put a new fuel filter in. What else can this be? I would appreciate any help


Well the misfire in Cylinder 3 will commonly be that your plug has gone bad. If that is the only code that it is throwing out then it could be an array of things going on. It sounds though that you may have a throttle position sensor out or that you ... 2003 Hyundai Tiburon

Check you EGR or your IAC valve. If either of these are bad they will make your car run rough and would also make you have all the problems that you are describing. I would take it to another mechanic and have them run the check engine light code. Th ... 2000 Ford Taurus

I have a 97 ford probe 4cyl. I'd like to adjust the tps with a voltage meter, but want to be sure I do it right! My check engine light isn't on but car idles rough. I've had the tps replaced in the past, so i know i don't need a new one. I've had open headers, cold air intake installed in the past also. My car runs great, just the idle is off a bit. I believe with all my MODs my TPS needs re-adjusting! Can you help me? Thanks,Lon

I have a 2002 chrysler 300. I just had a water pump & timing belt replaced as well as an oil change and 02 sensor replaced (diagnostic pointed to this). After all the work my car would run rough as if it were running out of gas on an idle or low rpm. I took it to a dealership and they said i needed an 02 sensor that was NOT after market, a Mopar one which I had them install as a software upgrade. It lasted for 34 miles and now the engine light is back on again! Help! Single mom who has just sunk


There is a possiblity another 02 sensor went. This is not a trial and error thing. Stuff happens. I suspect that the timing belt was replaced without lining up the cam gears because they either did not have the tool to hold them while the old belt wa ... 2003 Chrysler 300M

2001 Elantra. I have had a tune up and replaced a flexpipe, also used carb cleaner in the gas tank, but still experience a rough idle and check engine light is on.

Went to Autozone and got the trouble codes as p0303caused by 3 misfire detected, probable cause aa!-rich or lean air/fuel mixture. aa2 ignition system fault ( this could be ruled out as recent tune up

Sounds like your transmission light is going out. When the TC light comes on thats your first warning that something is wrong. This happened to us on our 2001 Odyssey in 2007 and Honda replaced the transmission under the 7 year 100000 mile warranty. ... 2001 Honda Odyssey

My 1997 Passport has a check engine light on. We did an oil change to verify that there is no water or metal in the oil. It is blowing white smoke out of the exhaust that smells very rich in fuel and there is a lot of condensation in the tail pipe. There is no oil in the radiator system either. There is also a knocking noise that disipates at the car runs which we believe to be an oil pump issue. The car occasionally dies and idols rough as well. Can you help us with some suggestions?

My 1992 Olds Cutlas Ciera with the 3300 V-6 engine just started to run very poorly. It just turned 200,000 rounds. The "Check Engine" light comes on all the time now and it is often hard to start. It idles very high too and will not "kick down". I put on a new harmonic balancer that was noisey and cracked. That didn't help the problem. Also my radiator fan does not come on and the car over heats. It had a bad plug and I could jiggle it and it would come on. So I got a new plug and wired that it


There could be a few things causing it to run poorly. One is the spark plugs and wires. Also, the coil pack (since the 3300 v-6 did not have a distributor) could also be going bad. My little brother had a 1997 Ford Escort that was doing the same thin ... Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

EVAP code P0446. I have replaced perge solinode and the canister perge valve. Can drive car all day long without check engine light coming on,even turning car off for a couple of hours light will not come on. When I let it set over night light comes on after about 1 or 2 minutes. Also after filing up car runs rough for a few seconds(rich, I think). Also when the tank is full the light might not come on after sett ing over night.
