Finished an aga coolant job but car runs bad. Not sure what to do from here. I was told I did not need to reset it by a dealer.

Idle is is rough. Seems like its staring for fuel. It wants to shut off. I did notice that the fuel level when extremely low but then when the engine is off but car is on the levels start to go back to normal

I don't understand what you're trying to say about the fuel, but are you sure you don't have a vacuum leak in the intake gasket or some gasket or hose?

I just finished mine. No need for reset if you had the battery disconnected. Double check all plugs and connections especially the ones at the back of the intake

You need to be more specific & give
better details , & scanning the trouble
codes would be very helpful ...

If you don't have a scanner you can always
go to your local Autozone or Pep boys &
have them scan it for you . Then just write
the errors down .

Took care of it. All I had to do is clear all the codes. I guess the car woke up. And realized all the plugs were off. Thanx to everyone.
