View Full Version : real low rough idle no power lots of boost

07-16-2005, 07:07 PM
i was driving my 92 manual four days ago when the check engine light came on and my engine lost power but still would drive and start the car from a stop. It would run with full boost going a little below neutral at idle and i couldnt rev the motor past ~2500 rpm and runs real rough. this lasted for about 5 miles then returned to normal. i didnt have time this week to fix it and hoped it wouldnt come back too soon. It started doing this agian today, i checked to besure i had all my belts and the pullies dont appear to be loose ive got engine and blower oil and i am able to turn off and start the engine while its doing this.

but the real issue is i need to drive 250 miles to a wedding that im the best man at on sunday, and it doesnt show any signs of going away this time

any help would be greatly appreaceated

Check your balancer and see if it is wobbling.
