Question about 1994 Toyota Camry
Well, I filled the car up with mid-grade Shell gasoline one day and then decided to run some fuel injector cleaner through the system for the sake of keeping the car running in tip-top shape. Well, immediately after leaving the fueling center, the "Check "Engine" light came on and the car began shaking badly when trying to accelerate. However, it never shuts off. While the light remains on, still, the car may or may not sputter. It seems to come and go whenever it feels like doing so. At highway speeds, it shakes and stumbles so hard that if feels like I'm gonna destroy the engine by breaking something. Seems fuel-related, but with all the complexity of cars today, I understand it could be electrical as well. I need some help before taking it to a shop or something. Would like to see if I can remedy the problem myself.
You may have gotten some bad gas. This gas could have been contaminated with water from condensation in the gas stations tanks, or just from being old. I would purchase some HEET brand water remover or SeaFoam fuel additive. SeaFoam will seperate water and clean your injectors. Both are very good products. Also a cheeper remedy is that if you believe it is water, then I would try pouring some rubbing alcohol (like in the medicine cabinet) in the gas tank. An ounce or two won't hurt and it will help seperate the water and allow you to drive your car.
Any questions, please ask!! And please rate!! Thanks!
