I suggest you have the trouble codes read and if there are any post them here. When you don't know what the issue is the first thing to do is check for spark and fuel to the engine.


Put the tools down and step away from the vehicle. Throwing the wrong parts at it is foolish and expensive. It is time to take it to an experienced mechanic.

That was rude sir, you go girl! My Lexus Es300 2001 is doing the same thing.


@Jenna, Well maybe I think you are the rude one. Throwing parts at a problem due to a lack of expertise in the diagnostic department is foolish. She needs a mechanic to get involved.
