Could be spark/ignition issue or fuel related. How many miles on the car and did you ever replace the spark plugs or wires? Any warning lights on the dash? Your car doesn't have a carburator. Take it into a local garage and they can diagnose your issue.


It's got 85,000 on it....I replaced the spark plugs a few years ago but I never drive the car cuz its kinda a shOw warning lights....just when I push the gas lightly it starts jumping but when I floor it then it stops


Now that I think about started when I Put a new water pump in....maybe something to do with that?
