Engine light comes on and car is running rich and smells like gas. Mechanic checked for gas and showed me corrosion on ignition coils nd plug wires attached.
misfire, shacking, leaking air.
starter sticks when i start car have to shut it off so starter doesnt burn out
Engine was misfiring. Every time the car shifted it thumped and jerked. Replaced the faulty coil and the wires and plugs. 377 dollar fix at a mechanic.
about a month ago i got 2 of my ignition coils replaced and just recently they need replaced again after i payed 300 bucks for repairs now it jerks and havent got it fixed yet!
