Default My ls 400 blues

I got this pristine 97 ls400 coach in nearly mint condition. Embroidery on leather and all. A couple weeks ago it threw some codes "multiple misfire and a trans shift code" did a tune up "plugs wires caps and rotors? Took it back out and same codes less the shift solenoid. Any help heading in the right direction would be appreciated.

Idk the exact codes but got a lil tired of messing around with it so I took it to the shop. Turns out my friend who put the wires on put #2 &5 in wrong trauth. Almost burned the wires in half. Their story as I haven't been up there yet. 200 for 2 new plugs and a set of wires. What you think?
Thanks.... Tony

I quite agree with you. I also think I wouldn't let dealerships to work on my Celsior. I don't find skilled mechanics anymore these days around here. Newly hired mechanics are not familiar to old cars. They even don't know much about newer cars though.
