Hello, and thank you for writing in. When the vehicle sputters and struggles to run, it is typically an air, fuel, spark, or sensor issue. If you have the ability to scan it for diagnostic codes, there may be information from the computer to help you make a diagnosis. With only the available information, we would need to perform some tests. Start with the ignition system by checking for sparks, and observing the condition of the spark plugs. You can also test for fuel pressure, and make sure your injectors are clean. You can also make sure your throttle and idle air control valve are clean and in good condition. For further diagnostic help, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.
