Ask her if the check engine light is lit up on the dash.

Best Answer

Well she said the check engine does not lit up

Sounds like a vacuum leak, but her best bet is to get it into the garage for diagnosis. No easy fix without looking at the car and hearing it run, especially going through multiple emails, texts, online and a few people to boot.
