Shakes or Wobbles problem
1997 Toyota 4Runner 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 170118 miles
While driving I thought the car was in 3rd instead of Drive gear, I put it it Neutral thinking it was going down to "D", I put it back to "D" and got a loud scraping noise, probably gearing? I lost power, car shakes very badly. I smells like it's burning oil. Ck eng lite on, oil lite on. Toyota dealer said codes were for misfiring, there's no compression in any holes, and they want to remove the top end and review the valves. I said just stop right there. They don't really have a clue until they remove the top and it's got allot of mileage for that. What is your opinion of what it might be, it's like the engine spun in reverse or something. I just need a clue instead of fishing, in order to make a good descision about the car myself.
have the same problem?
