go back to the person who sold it to you and ask for your money back or to fix it..sounds like they sold you a lemon

i had that problem with my car. is your temp gauge staying normal temp or is it pegging the limit? what is happening is your car is pre-detonating the gas so you need to look at your cooling system.
