Replaced Ignition Coil but Car still Vibrating Sign In

Hello, I have a 2009 Toyota Corolla LE with a little over 85,000 miles. About a month ago, the engine light came on and the car began vibrating and shuddering like it was going to stall out. I took it to a mechanic and he replaced the 3rd ignition coil. It's been working great since but in the last couple of days, it's started vibration / shuddering when I slow down or stop, but the engine light has not turned on. Does this mean I should replace all the coils? If so, what is a fair price? Or is this something we could do ourselves?

The mechanic I took it to charged $270 to change one coil and I've been told that was way too high. Just wanted to get some advice before I take it to another mechanic or try to do it myself. Thank you!!

Does $270 include parts and diagnostic time?

You might have to take it back to your mechanic and have them take it a look at it again. They can find out if the vibration your feeling is being caused by a misfire or not.

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.
