    Interesting 4.9 symptom, need ideas

    Hi all, I have a 1991 Fleetwood 4.9 with 167,003 miles on the clock. The car runs very well, but it is doing one thing that bothers me. At idle, like when stopped at a light, the engine feels like it has a miss. Its not random, but rhythmical. Just had a full tune up done and has been doing this since I got the car, but it seems like it might be getting worse? The car runs great with this exception. Has anyone ever experienced this or have any ideas? Thanks, Justin

    Either a stuck EGR valve, plugged EGR tubes, or leaky fuel injector.

    Mine will do a little shake at idle once in a while. I have all fresh tune up and EGR parts, so I just attribute it to having 141,000 miles on it. It's nothing major, but noticeable.
