Check engine light started blinking and car began to shake. Has difficulty in accelerating. When ran an engine diagnostic received multiple and several codes indicating misfires, camshaft position, timing errors, ect. Feels as if it needs a tune-up but it came on so randomly. Don't know what it can be and how to fix but afraid that its going to be very costly.
changed spark plugs and wires still experiencing misfires and loss of power. no solution yet.
