Question about 1998 Toyota Camry
I have a 98 Camry and just recently got the front tires replaced and its been jerking while i accelerate, they vary from being small to a little more and then small. i checked the transmission fluid and its fine, also the top passengerside motor mount has a small fracture, the check engine light is on, and i hear a slight whistle on the driver side of the front of the motor when the car idles... can you help me?
Thanks for contacting Fixya.com
Poor acceleration is because the engine timing is wrong i.e. the ignition is early or late.
A flashing check engine light means that something serious is wrong with the vehicle and you should not be driving it. Being that the vehicle sputters and jerks under acceleration, it is assumed that you have a failure in your ignition system. Always have the car scanned when your check engine light comes on to obtain diagnosetic computer codes. Most common failure is basic maintenance items, Spark plugs and wires. Simple enough to replace, and relativly cheap. Ignition coils, ignition module, and crankshaft sensor would also cause a severe misfire. again... both pretty simple to change, but these items cost more. Start by having the vehicle checked with a scan tool first.
Aloso check distributor timing and next timing belt depending on year and how many miles on this car you may need to replace the timing belt it can be a cause too.
Let us know if you have something more to know else please accept the suggestion.
