like the title says for my 00 toyota solara. my car is reading p0170 and p1150. i replaced the maf sensor, the a/f sensor, cleaned the throttle and iac, changed the pcv valve earlier, ran fuel injector cleaners, seafoamed the engine, changed the battery and changed the air filter. what am i missing? the problem is still the same. im hoping its not the o2's and i do need to change the fuel filter.

First of clear the codes and then read them.

Since you replaced the maf and a/f you have ruled out that possibility. The next is the O2.

Clear the codes first. Replace the filter if you wish.

what about the spark plugs and wires? Also it could be the Throttle position sensor gone bad. I'd check the spark plugs if you haven't already. Didn't say so in your description.

I had the vibrating problem in my bmw like it would shake really bad and it turned out to be the valve cover gasket..i remember it burning gas up often..my 2 cents
