My 2006 Sorrento began to stutter when I accellerate at a green light then it stops while I continue to drive. No check engine light

Asked by Feb 13, 2014 at 01:21 AM about the 2006 Kia Sorento LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

About 3 weeks ago, my Sorrento 2006 began to stutter only when I first press on the gas to drive when the light turns green, then my driving is smooth again.  Check engine light does not come on.  I was told to put fuel injection fluid in the gas tank when I fill up.  I did but has not stopped stuttering.  I think it lessened.  What's wrong?  Will it continue to lessen.  This was only 2 days ago.

as I've said before, a quick fix usually don't work, its your high tension plug wires or spark loss around the coil, look for white powder tracks
