Default Rough Idle For Baja?


I have noticed, driving my Mom's Baja that the idle is not as smooth as i think it should be. When I sitting still, and the car is on, it feels like the car starts to jerk rapidly to one side or the other. Could it be bad fuel injectors?

What do you guys think?

It may be many things; dirty/bad fuel injectors, bad gas-water in the gas, bad wires-plugs, sensors, etc... I would try putting in some gas treatment/fuel injector cleaner in first. Then go to a friend or an auto parts store(Autozone,Pep Boys) and have them use a code scanner on the Subie and see if there are any codes showing up.---Its a start in the right direction. I hope it helps.

I used fuel injector cleaner and a good oil change with anti sludge in the new oil. Runs smoother now.
