1984 Laser Turbo Idles Rough & Loses Power

Hello again everyone,

I need your help, my Chrysler Laser idles bad and engine shakes at low RPM, it also loses power and Boggs down when I give it some gas on the road. It seems to work ok if I accelerate very slowly.

I replaced the gas filter and had all the sensors checked by a mechanic shop and they say all sensors are working well. They think the shaking may be due to bad harmonic balancer?

I also replace the catalytic converter

I need help


Thank you

Not a pro here, but I had similar issues with my Shelby a while back, and I found it to be rusty fuel from the gas tank. The odd part, my fuel filter was clean to! I ended up replacing the whole fuel tank...

Re: 1984 Laser Turbo Idles Rough & Loses Power

Our cars do not use a Harmonic Balancer.

You need to verify All Basics are Correct.
1)Are any Fault Codes set?
2)Fuel Pressure correct?
3)Cam/Ignition Timing correct?
4)Map Output Voltage and Engine Vacuum correct?
5)Ignition System and Components ok, Plugs Worn or Fouled?

Thank you, I am going to replace the gas tank, since the old one is very rusty.
