Shakes or Wobbles problem
1998 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles
Yesterday after leaving work, it seemed like my cars acceleration was different. It felt like gas was not getting to the engine in a constant flow in that there was a lag, no lag, lag, no lag in very short intervals and it felt like the car might die. No dash light came on, except that my airbag light has been on for a year or so. When I came to a stop, the car idled rough and so I put the car in neutral and that seemed to minimize the situation.
The rest of the way home it felt like the car was just going to stop running, though it didn't, and then there was a weird chemical/burning smell. Also, lately, the car seems to be going through oil. Something that has never been a problem. There is no evidence of oil my driveway. I checked it last night and it is pretty low. Any ideas on what the issue might be?
Thanks a lot.
