i got it in to my mechanic. he started with new plugs and coils and no change. it's still running terrible, stalls after a few seconds and is throwing the same codes.

he checked the timing and it's good. did a compression test and he's getting fluctuating readings, but he's not sure about it because he can't get it up to operating temp to get accurate compression readings.

he did a full electrical diag and couldn't find any problems there either.

he thinks there is some internal engine problem- maybe a bent valve, stuck valve, bent camshaft or something along those lines. but he says he wont know until he tears the head off and starts looking around.

75k on this car with a perfect service history....SMH
