Answers from the Automotive Experts

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Wendy, It sounds like you may have a fuel or air problem. If either of these are not the right mixture, there can be driveability problems. You can check to make sure that your air filter is clean, otherwise you should probably take your vehicle to a certified shop or dealership to get a proper diagnosis.
