I have a 98 mazda mpv. I think I got some bad gas Friday. The motor cuts out when driving. It will accelerate fine for a while then start cutting out again. Can you help me solve this problem?

Do you

You can rent a gauge at a parts store and you can follow the directions with the kit.

You can also have a shop check it for you.
