I have an intermitant problem with 98 camry. Car looses power, rough idle & stalls (can keep it from stalling if I notice it's about to stall and keep foot on the accelerator). Happened twice in 10 days. The problem disappears and I've driven over 500 miles between episodes withou a problem. Could it be a coil pack about to go? What's your best guess?
