Car start to chock or like to hold back when I press on the gas but it only does this when the water tempature gets to the first quater. Is this the spark plugs or a sencer or the box distribution???????

It's probably a malfunctioning coolant temperature sensor causing it to go into limp home mode and not optimising the mixture for the engine temperature.

But when it gets to 1quater the car like holds back or like it chokes also when I make turns right or left the car like whants to die or it dies some times.
