I would imagine that it's flooding out. Either a problem with one of the engine sensors or perhaps leaking fuel injectors. Take this to a mechanic ASAP!


When was the last time a complete tune up was done? you will be suprised how bad plugs, wires (other start/ inj parts) will make a engine cranky
