When I see responses like these I would run from a mechanic that talkes like that. That tells me he doesn't like a particular brand and that means he doesn't care to know what he is doing on those.

You My friend want to blame a car for the maintenance that was ether neglected by previous or you don't expect to ever have to do anything but put gas in one. Used cars don't work that way. Last I looked every brand of auto sold in the USA has a shop full of there brand getting fixed. From 2013 on down. So maybe you should let the poster find some help from someone who has something to contribute in that area. And you can go check out some car for sale that your mechanic approves of. Then he can tell you how wonderful it is while he is picking you pocket for whatever repair.

Ok my apologys to you for the preceding.

Now what preceded this? Did it start this all of a sudden or gradually started to run poorly Is the engine light on? After it starts dose it stay running?

The engine started shaking and I stop the car. I went to the mechanic today. He said the seal around the coil had oil in it and replace he said he replace the spark plugs on it already. He said that the time was off too. But he said he was going to do more stuff to it.
