    Patulong naman mga sir? Iisa-isahin ko ang problems kasi medyo madami eh.

    1. May 1 month ng nagro-rough idling ang makina ko, 2 weeks na rin na nagloloko ang makina (sometimes namamatay kapag titigil ako sa traffic or magmemenor para mag-u turn... minsan hindi naman pero bumabagsak sa zero ang rpm na parang mamatay ang makina).

    2. Kapag nag-e-start ako, unang "click" parang aandar na sya pero mamatay lang (uugong lang). Ang ginagawa ko ini-start ko nalang ng matagal sabay tapak sa gas pedal para lang umandar. Umandar man sya sisinok-sinok muna bago pumino ang tunog ng makina.

    3. Kahapon lang umilaw ang "check engine" light ko. Ang ginawa ko pinatay ko ang makina, nawala ang light ng nag-start ulit ako. From Ortigas Center to Taytay nakatatlong on & off ako ng makina para lang mawala ang "check engine" hanggang sa hinayaan ko nalang na umiilaw hanggang makarating ako sa bahay. Ang napansin ko lang iilaw sya kapag nasa 50kph na ang takbo ko.

    4. Recently lang nagpalit ako ng brake pads/shoe pero lumulusot pa rin ang preno. Pinapalitan ko ang repair kit pero may konting lusot pa rin. Kapag binobomba ko sya at di binitawan ang preno tumataas ang rpm tapos bumabagsak sa zero na parang mamamatay ang makina. May nagsuggest sa akin na baka day sira na ang hydrovac ko?

    Mga sir really need your expert advice on this please. Totally kasi wala akong alam sa sasakyan. Thanks! God bless...

    your brake booster vacuum line is connected to your intake manifold, RPM will increase if you pump your brake since you are literally pumping in AIR to the intake manifold from your brake booster... possible that you have a busted brake booster causing the erratic idling of your engine... also have your IACV cleaned and checked.. Check engine light indicates your engine have some trouble and better have the codes checked or scanned..

    sir, try to tune up the car.

    your spark plug wires are bad
    As your spark plug wires start to get old, they may develop tiny cracks which can let little bursts of electricity out. This electricity was supposed to be going to a spark plug, and since it didn't, the engine will misfire slightly, meaning one of the spark plugs didn't spark enough. Once again, this can cause the Check Engine light to come on. With your engine off, check your spark plug wires for tiny cracks or holes, especially around the ends of the wires. If they look shabby, you should replace them.

    I agree. Try changing your plug wires with high tension ones like this set:



    Big difference in performance
