Yet another topic about rough idling
Ok, first off I know very little about cars, so I'll try my best on this. I have a 95 Ford Escort Wagon with a manual transmission. For a few months, it has been idling very rough. My friend thought it might be bad spark plugs and replaced them, and he also checked out the wires, but that didn't solve anything.
When I put the car in neutral or step on the clutch, the car shakes a lot. Sometimes it's not too noticeable, but it seems pretty bad lately. It also dies on me if I let it just sit there without giving it some gas.
My friend is going to look at it again tomorrow and see if he can figure it out, but he really doesn't know where to start from, so I'm hoping someone here could tell me what they believe the problem is. Someone suggested a bad oxygen sensor, but my friend isn't so sure of that.
Thanks in advance!
