When I crank the car it runs but it has a skip to it
My car has 75000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
I am making the assumption that the skip you are referring to is a misfire that you are describing. There are several factors that can cause an engine misfire. A defective distributor cap/rotor, bad spark plug, bad plug wire, internal engine damage, or a malfunctioning carburetor/fuel injection system. It will be necessary to do some basic diagnostics to help locate what is causing the problem. Unfortunately, there is no one common cause, and with the age of the vehicle, there is not the computer monitoring available to aid in the diagnosis. It will just take some hands on diagnostic work to find the issue. If this is something that you feel you could use a hand with, contact a certified mechanic, like the mobile mechanics available at YourMechanic.com.
