Not sure what a hard code 8 means for a Festiva, but you can probably find a Haynes or Chilton Manual at your local library and get some understanding of the problem - whether you try to fix it yourself or have a mechanic fix the problem. I had a similar problem with a 1987 Cavalier and it turned out to be a bad catalytic converter. - Good luck. have you tried changing the spark plugs?

Why your Toyota previa is running uneven?

If it is surging on acceleration and you feel a slip or vibration it probably needs a SAD shaft repair. Mine vibrates under acceleration, but then will disappear for awhile. I have a 1997 and found a SAD kit online for around $200.00. A Toyota dealer in town said they could install it for around $600.00. I have heard a more expensive fix is to replace the whole SAD shaft, which costs around $1200 at the dealer. The repair kit just replaces the loose bushings which cause the vibration.
