Rough Running Engine
Feeling a Little Jittery ?
If your vehicle’s idle is rough, possibly rising and falling, or having difficulty maintaining a steady rate of rotation, you may have a problem that needs fixing.
Since a smooth idle depends on just the right mixture of fuel and air, there can be many possible places where the fuel and the air are not being processed properly.
Many different problems could result in a rough idle for your car or truck, including: dirty fuel injectors, clogged air filters, bad spark plugs, and a variety of exhaust system issues.
Get it diagnosed by a professional.
