Your ZX2 runs very rough at idle then smooths out when accelerating?

== == == == We had this problem with our 2001 escort and we were told that we had a lot of carbon build up. We had a tune up and a carbon flush and it did way better. I had this problem, I thought it was electrical since it mainly happened when I turned on the lights or heater. I changed out the fuel filter and the problem was fixed. I also have a small vacuum leak in a hose off the valve cover that adds a little to the vibration. Answer My 98 zx2 has the same problem. I took it in and my mechanic told me that there had been a maintenence recall on the transmission mounts. they said the transmission mounts on zx2s tend to wear out over time and that causes the vibration. they also said you'll know that's the problem if it smooths out in neutral. Tune up will probably help. Kind of sounds like your fule filter may be cloged. if the cam belt has been changed recently the cam positioning sensor could be bad so if you know someone with a programmer talk to them to be sure This could be due to damage/deterioration of the motor mounts. The next time you take your ZX2 in to be serviced ask the technician to check the motor mounts for excessive wear. I was experiencing this very issue on my 2000 ZX2 and it turned out to be a leak in the hose that connects to the PCV Valve. Replaced the hose and the engine smoothed out. ANSWER This is due to a design issue with the engine. There is a Technical Service Bulletin from Ford TSB 031515 that involves reconfiguring the motor mounts. I've chosen to just live with it.

Should you shave a border collie?

No. You should never shave a border collie!

These dogs have a soft undercoat for insulation AND a longer outer coat for protection against wind, rain etc. If you shave the dog, it will have no protection against the elements and will be very susceptible to illness as the wind, rain & snow can soak all the way to its skin.

Also, the dog's outer coat may never grow back properly if you shave it off, so you run the risk of ruining your dog's appearance forever.

Border Collie's are made to be long coated so DONT shave a Border Collie EVER


Yes you may. Just make sure you have it done by a professional.

Why can't you give your border collie a heargard pill supposibly it has something to do with the ivermectin?

Some Collies suffer from a special http://www.answers.com defect due to a mutation in the multidrug resistance gene, MDR1. This is also known as "the http://www.answers.com-sensitive collie". All dogs with this mutation must be descandents of a dog who lived in Great Britain in the midst of the 19th century. This mutation is found worldwide and can even cause the death of a dog, if it gets the wrong medicine (based on Ivermectin, Doramectin, Loperamid and many more pharmaceuticals). Therefore all Collies and breeds akin to them (such as the http://www.answers.com) should either be tested or receive a different class of heartworm preventative drug, such as milbemycin oxime (Interceptor brand by Novartis).

What is the biggest a border collie can be?

My Border Collie, and yes he is pure bred, weighed in at a svelte 95 pounds when I last took him to the vet. He was 4 at the time and in very athletic and toned condition. He has since slowed down at bit but his appetite has not waned. He now weighs 100 pounds, but has lost very little of the inherent quickness that the breed is known for. He is 7 and very healthy.

When on idle my 95 Blazer 43L runs really rough but when you push the gas it smooths out until you let off then it runs rough again what are somethings that could be the problem?

um start with the old compresion check jack um could be anything burt piston rings to timing being off i would suggest a complete tune up then compression check then if that's ok start checking voltage outputs of the coil/paks and ignition and emmisions controls sensors ect......

AnswerIt sounds like what my '94 was doing. It ended up being the fuel pressure

Common problem with 1995 4.3 w central port injection is that the injector lines and fuel regulator under the intake plenum are plastic and begin to leak and literally pour fuel through the system. I just replaced both on my 1995 s10 and it runs like new again.

How do you take care of a rough collie?

Hi,

Like any other dog, a rough collie especially, needs a lot of attention. A rough collie has to be considered as a member of your family in order to be loved a cared. A collie needs a place where he can run and if you don't have any space like flats , you should take him/her at least once a day for a walk. If you live in hot places, ensure that your collie can resist such hot places. Make sure that your collie sleeps inside, or if you do not want him in your house, make sure that he has a kennel so he can protect himself from sand fly. The rough collie is an amazing dog, both from appearance and character.

it has to be brushed everyday and washed once a month. If you are on holiday, make sure that your dog is taken good care of either by a family mmber of friend. The collie needs someone he knows and trust.

I have got a rough collie and wanted to share with you some skills.

Hope this helps

Start at a young age when they are able to walk and see.You can use a goose or a baby lamb and maybe even a cat so they can herd and get them use to seeing their parents doing the job or not introduce them to sheep and not to be afraid.

Are border collies clever?

The Border Collie is officially ranked as the most intelligent dog breed by Stanley Coren. He is naturally clever and can pick up tricks really quickly, as well as excelling at herding, agility, and many other dog sports. Border Collie, however, can show destructive or obsessive behaviour if not provided with enough physical and mental stimulation.

Do rough collies need to herd?

A collie is a herding dog and needs to work. Although herding would be a great activity for the dog, it is not always an available option. These dogs need to do something to keep them happy, frisbee, flyball, agility are all great options too.

Can a rough collie live in Florida?

Yes, actually, they can-fine if you know how to treat them. A smooth collie is more suited for the job, but rough collies are good, too. Never let them too long in the sun-maxium is about 2-3 hours or so. They cannot stand the heat and might get heatstroke, and also their noses are prone to sunlight. Once dry, this can cause breathing problems.

Are Collies the same as Border Collies?

Nope. They're different dog breeds. Border collies are the smartest dog breed and the most common color is black and white but can also be brown and white. Both are great herding dogs but border collies are the best herding dogs because of their intelligence. Border collies also need a job to be happy. Both dogs are good but I strongly recommend a border collie if you have a job for it to do. They're both loyal, cute, and smart dogs.
