Go to a auto parts store like Auto Zone or Advance and they will read the codes for free. that will help you determine the problem so it can be fixed...

i tried to get codes read was told car is too old


t's not too old to get the code scanned, it just uses an older style code scanner. (not the current OBD I or II). You can actually read the codes for free without a scanner following this guide: http://www.obd-codes.com/faq/read-gm-2-digit-obd-codes-free.php - by the way, you should look for another mechanic. Sounds like he is just easter egg hunting at your expense.

Sounds more like the camshaft sensor is going bad.
