Customer Question
My 98 camery doesn't...

My 98 camery doesn't want to idle. Check engine light is on and blinks sometimes. codes say #2 & #3 misfires. Put on new coil-pack and checked plugs. The plugs have good spark and the cly's have good compression.

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

Stays on

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 98 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes

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

Transmission doesn't seem to shift right sometimes.
