I have this car for 4 years and it had been for services, but it always had that problem. There are no codes being given and its a fuel front wheel drive


that old dirt road thing is messin with my mind for answer,I think i got something a heat problem! somewhere too much heat, coil breakdown, or vapor lock the fuel, or fuel tank suction with no vent ? carry on my flend!
