When I accelerate, it seems as if the car chokes. The engine starts to "putt putt" when I hit the gas. I'm not sure if the car needs a tune up or if something is wrong with the gas line. I've put gas treatment in the car when I use regular "87" gas. I was thinking also, maybe the fuel injectors are clogged? Please let me know as I don't want to be take for a ride at the mechanic shops. Thanks for your help.
