Just bought this duster for $500. It's a 2.5L and is just a gutless wonder. Timed 0-60 in 32.4 seconds. When the cars cold, and I push the accelerator, it sputters like it's going to die for about 1sec. And then accelerates at it's "normal" slow rate. However it starts right up and never dies (yet). I read up on similar problems and am going to try replacing the fuel filter and seeing if the O2 sensor needs cleaning/replacing. Are these good places to start? Is there other advice or ideas I should know or try?
When this car finally reaches 70mph and above on the freeway and I enter a curve, the car will smoothly start the curve and then suddenly start lurching in the direction of the turn as if the drive wheel was switching back and forth. Once under 70mph it goes back to turning smoothly. Any ideas on this one?
