Smile Low Speed Miss

130k MILES, USES A LITTLE OIL, HAS NOT BEEN ABUSED. I have picked up a low speed miss which is worse when cold. Runs good under power. Really bad when I first start. thanks for the help. JDS549

Sounds like a weak or partially clogged injector to me.

WMRiceman is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Would a partially clogged injector cause a code to set? Just wondering.

It didn't on mine when it was rocking during the fast idle warm up. Stick shift shaking and everything.

My 99 is doing same thing ... more noticeable after a long haul and you stop at a red light ... feels like im semi bouncing up and down ... stick shaking about 1/4 inch .... not as noticeable while accelerating but seems rougher than what i once thought was normal vibrations .... I tried a bottle of "GUMOUT Diesel Fuel Injector Cleaner" a couple of weeks ago to see if i would notice any difference .... it acuallt seemed to be getting worse.... on top of that i have noticed a small leak on driveway... smells like oil (just noticed it today) this may be from loose oil filter.. just recently had it replaced.

How many times and how often should i run a bottle of diesel kleen through it to make sure i have them kleen .... they have never been cleaned (128K miles)

I run Deisel Kleen on every tank, unless I have some Bio-diesel in it.
