Hey guys I need some help. I've been having this problem since Nov 2006. I"ve brought my 1998 4runner Limited in for repairs about 3 times and the problem has not resolved. They just keep telling that they can't find anything wrong (through diagnostic testing) and to bring it in if the problem continues. Well obviously it's continues after about $2k worth of useless mechanic time They did an alignment, fuel induction service, and major tune-up. What's happening is that my 4runner shake/rumbles exclusively while on the throttle. It initially did it while at highway speeds (65-70) after a while it did it while at idle. Please help!

You know what.I was never told what code/reading it was putting out. But I remember when I took it in the first time the mechanic told me that the only code it put out was that one of the spark plugs had carbon build up on it and he fixed it by cleaning it off. Also, the third time I took it to the shop I actually let it shake until the check engine light came on and now it's starting to blink/flicker at me so i'm concerned more now than ever! Please help. Thanks.

The 1 cyl. Is a misfire-now the CEL is back On-get it read and comeback with the code/s. My wild guess here it'll probably comeback with a random misfire-
