What could cause slight engine missing when driving to higher altitudes usually 3000 feet?
check the rubber tube next to the the lower intake manifold gasket, there is probably a hole on the underside of the tube coming directly off the engine. (it is a manufacturer defect)
A sudden engine stop means one of four things: no spark, no ignition switch, no gas or no engine. No spark first. There is a fuse labeled IGN in your fusebox. If it's blown, no power gets to the coil. I find it's easier to troubleshoot these things if you just change the fuse. If that didn't work, it may be the fuel pump relay. It's labeled EFI - electronic fuel injection - and it…
This is mainly because the air/fuel mixture is not set for the higher altitudes. The lower atmospheric pressure at higher elevations means the engine will operate leaner then the ideal air/fuel mixture. If you set a vehicle to operate at only high altitudes then it would run to rich and have less power once you left the mountains. This overly lean condition is also why an engine will overheat more easily at high altitudes. The…
well the amount of cylinders in the engine will usually mean the size of the engine, and when the engine is bigger it usually means that you potentially get worse MPG unless talking about a mix of a gas engine and some sort of hybrid motor and your MPG may very depending on how you drive and if your driving in the city or on the highway as the highway you will get better MPG…
Why wont your 1990 Honda start you were driving downm the road and it acted like it ran out of gas and just died?
What is the possibilty that the valves are bent in a 86 Honda Accord lx 2.0 with the timing belt missing about 4in of teeth Car shut off while you were driving and hasn't been ran since?

Driving doesn't directly produce it - the chemical reaction of fuel undergoing combustion in the motor is what produces it. The principle carbon emission from cars is carbon dioxide. There is some carbon monoxide in the direct engine exhaust if the engine does not have the right air/fuel mixture. This is usually removed by proper operation (since 1975) of the catalytic converter.
You have 2002 mustang it is missing check engine light is on had code checked at AutoZone crank shaft sensor and number 3 cylinder misfiring changed sensor still missing?
If you mean why the difference in RPMs between idling and driving, the difference is due to the engine load; At idle, the engine isn't really doing much other than staying running, but under load (driving) the engine has to put its power out to the drivetrain, hence the symptomatic loss of engine speed (RPMs).
