I'm new here so be gentle
My mom has a 96 I30 w/ about 100k miles on the clock. Well recently, it would randomly die at low rpms like at stop lights and such. It never gave her a check engine light. She took it to the dealership and they said they could not find anything wrong w/ the car. So she gets it back and it does the same thing, just more often. She takes it back to the dealership and they supposedly put two master technicians on it to solve the problem but once again, they couldn't find anything wrong. Their guess was it was a bad coil pack but since they couldn't pinpoint which one it was, she'd have to pay $800 to replace them all
Well she just got fed up of it and bought a brand new I30 and gave me the 96 for my daily driver (my other car is a 98 Z28). Well I'm stumped as what this could be. They cleaned the injectors, said the fuel pump was fine. I'm going to replace the fuel filter tomorrow and see if that does it.
Here are the symptoms:
-Dies at low rpms
-Raw fuel smell sometimes when it dies
-Mom says she sees white smoke come out of the exhaust at times (coolant, oil?)
I thought it may be O2 sensors but won't those give you a CEL? Also, if it dies at a light and I start it back up and put it in neutral and rev it to 1000+ until it turns green, its fine.
Sorry for so much info, but I'm stumped and supposedly all of the local service department is to. Thanks in advance.
