Check for applicable trouble codes. That is the next step, in my opinion. To check for codes, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader. How long since a tune-up?

Hey, no snow here. Unseasonably warm. Lol

I didn't see your post till I had already posted. I guess we were looking at the same post at the same time. Have a good day.
