I must update y story about my 1999 Toyota Corrollla from a few months ago when it had the 02 sensor misfire problem. That problem was corrected. However, 3 weeks ago, I noticed my car was "preparing" me for another problem. I felt the car periodically "skip", or "miss", or "lurch" after changing gears, and thought my transmission or clutch was defective. However, finally it started "skipping" on me again BIG TIME and the Check Engine Light was flashing like crazy. I took it to the mechanic, and he examined and determined that the COIL PACK was defective. How did he determine this? He put the car up to the little computer to read the Check Engine code, and again it said 02 Sensor misfire. So, he changed the plug, drove the car, and it started throwing sparks. So. He changed the coil pack, and it's all good now!
