Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

Sounds like you may a vacuum leak or excessive carbon build up in the throttle body and intake system. listen to the engine run at idle and see if can hear a hissing noise. If so, check all vacuum connections and PCV valve. A carbon induction service would also improve drivablity
