Q: Engine skipping.

asked by on

The engine is skipping. I also need someone to inspect and replace the belts.

The skipping you are feeling is the engine misfiring. Your engine coils, plugs and plug boots may need replaced. The valve covers may also be leaking oil into the spark plug holes and the cause of the miss fire. I recommend you have a qualified mechanic inspect the misfire and replace your belts for you also.
