Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2009 toyota camary and two day
ago i was i need of a hot shot and after
receiving one the cat started rihht up but
when i pur it in drive it was very sluggish and
hardly moved, then i tryed to reverse it and it
did not move at all. I believe it moved
forward because i was on a slight hill. I was
able to get it pushed forward and backward
but the car would not accelerate and there
was no rev noise when pushing on the gas.
The check engine and fuel light is now on.

What is a hot shot? Whatever, it sounds like you fried something electrical with the "hot shot"

Has anyone checked FLUID LEVELS on this vehicle Lately? What engine and mileage?

I believe it is coffee of some sort.

Thanks for the info. It was a blown fuse. Maybe three dollars. Thank god for a good father that would not have me waist money to take the car to the shop so that they could tell me anything.
