02 Camry rough idle at stops and accelerating Sign In

2002 Toyota Camry
2.4 V6

My car has developed a rough idle when stopped and when accelerating. When I got the CEL, I had the codes read at Advance Auto.
The codes are P0301, P0302, P0303, P1349.
I finally have time to work on it and any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Don't have a database available at the minute, but the first three codes are cylinders 1, 2 and 3 misfiring. The other one may give a clue as to why but check out the basics first. What shape are your plugs in? Compare the first three with the misfire codes to the others and tell me what the difference is if any.

4 cylinder is the 2.4L and the 3.0L is the 6 cylinder. Which is it?

Your stuck VVT phaser might have something to do with the misfiring.

Is there a way to clean the VVT-i?

Don't let the oil get that dirty in the first place and you won't have VVT problems.
