Replaced trans and coils...it passed inspection and was running fine. Now, it shakes and stalls after start and the engine light comes on. I had the codes checked and says problems with 1,2,3 ignition coils...but I replaced those and engine light still comes on and the car still shakes and putters on

1 Answer

are you sure you got the plug wires back on right,just because they new dont mean they are good.you also have a gray box mounted on top of engine at ac that could be bad also it controls the spark( cant think of part name)but if u look under hood u will see it.
