Based on what you are saying, I would check the Computer with the scanner... common things are that the car is either running rich or poor... vacuum leak, MAF sensor, injectors throwing too much gas (fuel injector leak) or completely shut. There are just so many things... I would recommend taking it to a local repair shop... not the dealer.

does the exhaust smell normal or does it smell like raw gas? is check engine light or reduced power light on? does the engine shake under this condition? find a mechanic you can trust.. ask friends & family. could be a leaky injector or even a mouse crawled in the exhaust.

Wow no one knows lol

Ok that's is what's rong with James !!!!!!! Stupid lol now we all know
