Question about 1999 Toyota Camry
My check light went on one day & then the next day the trac light went on. could you possibly tell me what may be going on?
You need a new mechanic...he obviously has sh*t for brains.
You're engine light is telling you that it's throwing some sort of code (ie. something is wrong, it needs to get fixed). But, the engine light shouldn't come on when you have your brakes done. There are number of reasons as to why you're getting poor gas milage (ie. clogged air filter, low air in the tires, etc. But in this case, it sounds as if one of the brake pads are dragging more on the rotors than they should be.
Now, as for the jerking in acceleration and idling weirdly, it sounds as if your air filter (and mass air flow sensor) needs to be cleaned. My mustang idles high when it needs to be cleaned. As for acceleration, you might want to have your distributor checked (the newer mustangs have coil packs instead). This can cause jerking AND low gas milage.
If you want to save yourself a chunk of change, go to autozone and rent their OBDII scanner, hook it up under the driver's side, and it'll tell you if your car is throwing any codes (you can look the codes up online to see what they mean). If nothing shows up, then your car should be fine. But if something does, then atleast you've narrowed down the factors of the problem.
