    Rough Idle

    I have had a 2001 Camaro z28 for about three years and now it is starting to idle a little rough. I have replaced all plugs and wires on the car and that helped the problem a little bit but it still idles rough. The car only has 25,000 miles on it now so i do not know what the problem is, any help on this would be great.

    Thanks
    Luke

    have you tried cleaning the MAF and IAC? Those seem to be the source of most rough idle problems, followed by a clogged fuel system.

    But on a serious note, buy a can of BG44k and put it in with a full tank of gas and it should clean out all the fuel lines and everything the fuel touches, if that doesnt help then your SOL

    Try cleaning the throttle plate. If you just did a full tune up you should do a crank relearn which is done with a scanner or you can simply unhook the battery for 10-15 minutes to accomplish the same thing.
