Asked by Dec 26, 2010 at 07:18 PM about the 1998 Toyota Camry CE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

have a 1998 camry with the 2.2 in it. It has had the code 0300 on for some time
now (EGR FLOW) and every now and then for the past few months it would run bad
when i first fired it up and accelerated, it would flash thew check engine light ten
or so times and then be fine. But yesterday when i was coming home it kept
flashing the light and was running horrible, the engine was shaking bad and it was
back firing when i gave it gas, i drove it ten miles more like that to get home Now
it is still doing it and it has now power and shakes bad, even when it is in park and
idling. I pulled the codes P0300 P0301 P0302 P0303 P0304 and P0401 today. My
neighbor said it might be the timing belt, but i have no idea whjat it could be. It
has 175000 miles.
Thanks guys for any help.
