Means coil is worn out and dropping power I assume they mean. When a coil gets old it overheats easily and not giving enough juice to the plugs. It's easy to test so most likely it failed the test and was your problem.

Car shakes at idle, sometimes feels like it slips when moving, exhaust crackles and pops?


You didn't mention which engine you have. If it is a 6 cylinder and the coils were changed the ignition wires should also have been changed. The rain, or moisture, will arch on broke down ignition wires. If the engine is a 4 cylinder, the spark plug boots should have been changed, if not the same condition would occur.
If the check engine light continues flashing you will damage the catalytic convertor. Have the PCM scanned again for miss fire codes, P0300, 301, 302 and so on.

I have a 2006 Sebring 2.7 L V6 with 75500 miles. For the last few weeks, a few things have been going on. First, AT TIMES, when I start the car, it will have a rough start in the morning and shake a bit....


This is a direct fire ignition system, coils over the plugs. You have never had any code but P0300 Random miss show up? Also do you routinely run the gas tank lower than 1/8 tank, if so that can be the cause.

Code po705 mazda protege lx shaking rough start


The Code you refer to is P0705 Transmission Range Sensor Circuit malfunction (PRNDL Input). It is a possiblility that because this code is present, this sensor is malfunctioning. If it is malfunctioning, that means the engine needs to "guess" the value that this sensor is responsible for. In most cases when this happens, the engine will go for a value that ensures the car runs. The engine will not try to run smooth or efficently, it will only try to run. It is my guess that if you have the sensor checked and replaced, the problem might be fixed. Please let me know if this answers your question and please rate my response. Thank you

Very Rough running engine


I think the auto-lite plugs are probably your problem. yes it sounds like mis-firing. That's one of the few times the check engine light flashes. I'd suggest changing the plugs to a NGK plug, that's the ONLY plug we use in our Audi's and VW's (work at a VW/Audi shop). Try that, and it should take care of the rough running, if not, it will probably need coils too.

Shaking badly


My '97 F-150 started doing the same thing a few weeks ago. Took it to the Ford garage yesterday. They found a bad spark plug wire and because of that, a bad plug also. Have you had it tuned-up lately?
