Customer Question
The check engine light...

The check engine light and the VSC lights has been on

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Not the vsc with vsc off. Just the VSC logo closer to the odometer

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

Camry 2011

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Camry yourself? What have you tried so far?

My mechanic said he diagnosed it and claimed he fixed it by cleaning the plugs and injector units but before I drove home the lights came up again

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Juddering, yes slightly when I come to a stop and want to move also when the gear wants to change but this does not happen often. Usually hardly occurs after oil change but starts again after a short while.The car also dies 'cuts power completely' especially when I run it after a rainy day except I pull over and run the engine on park for a while for the Rev to increase.Also the wheels feels light when this occurs.

Ok to be honest it sounds like the missfire your mechinaoc has been attempting to fix is still there as this will cause all your symptoms
