until i accelerated to 90 mph passing a car. she started missing a little during the acceleration and got worse during deceleration. it continued for the remainder of my trip home. after about 15 minutes i went outside to start her and she is missing all the time now and the check engine light is now flashing on and off. they had to replace a coil for one of the spark plugs that broke when they tried removing it. for the service they replaced the timing belt, pulley, water pump, checked the valves for adjustment (no adjustment needed), serpentine belt, spark plugs and one (1) coil that was broken. Any advice or diagnosis?? i sure don't want to damage her trying to get it back to the mechanic?? Thank you!!!!
