having this problem right now. its hard to control the car when this happens and the mechanic can't fix it unless I can get it there so he can see/hear it. it usually dies down by the time I get there, but it returns randomly.
sometimes my car will cut off wile i;m warming it up or try to choke out at a stop light
rough idle ony when first start engine
Rough idle. Just started after a 2 hour drive. Run fine until I stop the it seems to chug.
about the EGR i have the same problem.... the EGR is 150.00 200.00 never buy used from a junk yard or clean them i did both and lost money. you have to buy new!
Harsh start egr sticking open can't solve disfunction. I did a parsidic draw test and found out it was my comfort fuse draining my battery. Well, I started pulling it every night and everything was working good new egr valve and battery give or take 2 months car starts acting up even with fuse pulled.
Dies at any stop or normally when I 1st put it in drive
I had the throttle clean new Egr new idle control valve new plug
My idle is high, typically around 1,200 rpm. However, it fluctuates...
