1994 Buick Skylark 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 103500 miles
My car is idling rough. When driving in town at lower speeds you don't notice anything being wrong with the car until you take it above 50. After 50 the car jerks like a spark plug is misfiring but I've had those replaced. When the car is stopped with just the brake, like at a stoplight you can feel it, almost like it's sputtering but if you put it in park it is not nearly as noticeable. When in park, it's more occasional than ongoing. I did notice that I have an exhaust leak coming out of my muffler. When the car is running you can hear it missing or whatever it's doing through the muffler. Sounds like it's spitting. When you're driving above 50 and the problem is really bad if you press on the gas it stops until you release the gas again. It's really bad going up hills, I have to press hard on the gas and continue to accelerate all the way up the hill to get it to stop. What could be wrong? Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you in advance!
have the same problem?
