My friend has a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire SE (hahaha I know) and lately he has been having a vibration problem with it. It happens at both idle and when he's cruising. When he drives the car aggressively, it doesn't smooth out. When my deVilles #5 injector went, it would idle rough and it would be very rough when I was at a constant speed, but when I would floor it, it would smooth out.

I was thinking it's like spark plugs or wires, maybe a fuel injector. What do you guy think?

Oh yeah, its the 2.2 liter I-4, with some after market parts

Thanks a lot!

PS. I should just tell him to sell and move on up to a nice big ol' Caddy :thumbsup:

the *old* 2.2L (NOT the Eco) is kind of a POS... reliable, but no power... POS isn't the right term... but eh... when compared to the Quad4/2.4 Twin Cam/Ecotec.... it is lacking big time.

sounds to me like fuel/ignition problem... pull the plugs see how they look, then I would do the normal stuff from there...

What uh "aftermarket" parts does he have installed?

Is the check engine light on or even blinking, possibly signifying a backfire.



ps. I own an Acura Integra now as well :lildevil:

Ha Ha Night Wolf.

See, PEER PRESURE, PEER PRESURE...You are slowly being hypnotized...(subliminal message in the background: Buy a Toyota, Buy a Toyota. Do it because Consumer Reports sayyss soooo.):histeric::histeric::histeric:

But really, just face the facts, the Sunfire sucked. That's why it didn't sell, and that's why they stopped making it.:thumbsup:

I don't know. I mean, when I think *******, I always get the mental picture of some guy in a sleeveless white t-shirt with a mullet and blue jeans who is leaning up against his T-Top Trans Am:p
