Hi,

We need to start what codes are in the system. More than likely this is a misfire or possibly a vacuum leak. However, we need to find out if and what codes are there before we start guessing. If you don't have a code reader or scan tool, most parts stores will pull codes free of charge.

Let me know what you find and we can go from there. Thanks
