Sounds like your car needs some love. Start with the basics, plugs and filters, and or have someone more competent to look it over for you.

Sounds like leaky injectors or a bad fuel pressure regulator. Once fixed you'll need new plugs as Tom said. HTH. -Jim


Thanks guys will check out pressure of fuel reg . And injectors ,we did the plugs and ht leads all filters were done also oil change by a back yard mechanic and the car has come back like this ? It was running fine when it went in I've also seen a thread to a oxygen sensor we can pick one up for $100 might give that a try to , thanks for responding the more help the better kh
