Hello
In the morning it does not start up from first try and the next problem is the idle is too low and when I put it in drive the rpm's are jumping, but not always. I change the plugs and the coil cable and the distribution and still the same. I opened the throttle I could see oil inside, I cleaned it and after two days the the problem returned. I took it to the garage to have it scanned to see the misfire in all cylinders.
Any ideas?
Thank you
Do you

Maybe the coolant temp sensor is not reading that its cold. Sound like you may have a bad idle control or maybe a bad throttle body. Its hard to diag something like this without seeing or hearing it.

Hey, MOHAMAD KIBRIT

Have you thought of the mass air flow sensor? If this sensor is dirty with contamination it will give a false reading the computer, follow the guide below to clean and get back to us.

No error will be recorded because the reading is simply off but not enough to set an error code. Please try to clean it to see how it does, the mileage is perfect for this kind of repair although replacement is the best way to fix this kind of problem, that's why the dealership has an advantage they just pull on off the shelf and then put it back if it doesn't work. Let me know what you find.

Hey,

To change the fuel pump you must drop the tank, its best if you have it low on gas or drain the gas,

here is a leak on how
