Mother has a 97 catera and lives in MI while i'm in TN. She was driving the other day and heard a loud noise like a tire blow out. Now that she remembers this little gem it seems this is when the car started running rough. Had her take it to stealership and they pulled the codes P0301, P0304. From reading on here I know thats misrfire on 1 and 4. Dealer also noted on reciept that they found coolant in the oil and oil in the coolant. Could this be due to the Coolant/oil heat exchanger issue ?

Has 87802 miles but is in pretty good shape, what to do ?

oh she also mentioned some light now that says TC ?

UNghhhhh I wish I was there..... Dealer says not worth fixing

Thanks all
