Get the codes read to see if anything is stored. What does it do when it "runs like it has bad gas"?

It hesitates, and backfires. It don't stall, and it idles fine. The only code that pops up is my AC is disconnected.


Carbon build up on valves maybe not wanting to seat properly all the time.

how many miles are on it? i had an intermittent fuel pump problem before it finally went out.

The fuel pump is about two years old. And it has 138968 miles on it.
