Now, I've read all the horror stories of the head gasket problem, and was accually for-warned when I bought the car of easy gasket failure. BUT, that's not my problem.
After I received my car for the head gasket repair, check engine light popped on, and ithe car has a rough idle @ around 800 rpm's in park. At first it was throwing out codes p1519 and p1250. checked google and, P1519 was cam positioning sensor. Found a couple of different definitions for p1250. Sent it back to the mech. He said he fixed the p1519 code problem, and gave the car back with no check engine light on. Only, the rough idle remained. Now the check engine light comes on and off every now and again. Popped the hood, and it seems like the motor is shaking a little. No over heating at all, just this rough idle.
Any clues, anyone? I've really just shelled out alot of green on this whole ordeal. I don't want to give up on the car. Up until this accident, I had not one problem in all the years I owned the car. I really need some HELP! Thanks.
