I just put new plugs and wires on my 3.3L engine and now it idles worse than before. I am getting codes P0404 and P0406. Would the EGR valve go bad that quickly? Bad idle just started after plug and wire change.

When the car is off about 6 or 8 hours give a hard time to start it. After a few minutes the car start it and make some noise like plum,plum then start it and not problem after being cold again for 6 or 8 hours, what do you think is the problem or problems ?

I recently had refrigerant added to my ac system. The ac only cools for a few minutes on high speed now,then begins blowing warm air. seems okay on all other speeds.Yesterday I noticed a strange odor. Everything looks okay as far as I can tell, but there is no cover on the service port. Is it possible that the man overcharged my system and the odor is due to escaping refrigerant when the engine is hot?

Instrument Panel lights - abs. security and service lights stay on and fuel gauge sometimes moves back and forth. Had it checked out and the problem is not with brakes. Can't take it to authorized dealer until Tuesday but need to make long trip before then. Is it safe to drive!
