When is the vehicle missing. At idle or while driving it and if so what speeds? Does it misfire when the car is cold or warm or both?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
The car misses when driving. When the gas pedal is pushed to the floor. at times it will run great but mostly it will miss as if it is an electrical breakdown.

I want you to check the throttle position sensor do you have a Digital volt meter?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
