  1. my 05 stang is wanting to die at an idle. it runs great but idling is a different story. the check engine light has came on and it says its misfiring in 3 cylinders but i cant figure out why. any ideas?
     
  2. How many miles and do you have? New spark plugs yet? I'm about to do mine at 100k miles but I'm not having any issues with them. It runs fine when you get on the throttle though? Just rough at idle?
     
  3. ive got 95k on her and yeah new plugs. it runs great when i get on the throttle not even tryin to run it hard just a normal curse it runs fine. only when i set still it really rough
     
  4. Well, i can't help you. :( What RPM is it trying to idle at when it gets rough?
     
  5. 600 rpm she usely idles at 1000....would a bad alternator cause it?
     
  6. Yeah, mine doesn't idle near 600rpm unless it's in drive (auto) and usually like 800-1k in neutral/park. Can't say on the alternator part.
     
  7. What cylinders are misfiring? How new are the plugs? Did you change the wires when you changed the plugs?
     
  8. 2 3 and 6 brand new plugs still didnt fix the problem yeah thats about where mine idles but right now when i put it into gear it goes down to like 4 or 500 and then trys to kill it self or is real jumpy
     
  9. Did you mix up the plug wires when changing plugs?
     
  10. nope i did then 1 by 1 to make sure i didnt get them crossed
