My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. First off, any mechanic that say’s one part is the issue without inspecting the vehicle isn’t a very good mechanic. This is why we really can’t tell you what to repair without completing a car is hard to start inspection. It is possible that ignition system components like the crankshaft or cam position sensor is causing an ignition timing issue, or mass air flow sensor, O2 sensors or simply clogged or dirty fuel injectors.
