I am huge car talk fan and glad to find this forum to share/discuss about our cars.
We have owned a 95 Camry V6 for 20 years and it has always been reliable. However, several days ago, the car started to have its first engine performance issue. When we start the engine cold, there was rough idle/engine lope. If it was warmed up for about 5-10 minutes, the car was fine for the entire day. but during this rough idle, the car jerked slightly as well if i press on the gas.
Since the symptom began, I took it to local shop A and they replaced all the spark plugs, pcv valve and air filter which did not solve the rough idle/looping problem. The rough idle continued, and few days later, I was unable to start the engine though it cranks. (at least that’s what I think it does). Had it towed to shop B and they’ve replaced oil pump, which they thought to be the problem. I took it home, and the next morning I found myself unable to start the car. Now the car is back at the shop, and I just want to check here to see if anyone has any idea what may be the problem. Thank you!!
