Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It will start but it sounds like it is hitting on 2 plugs but can give it a little gas and it will
smooth out but you put it into gear and drive it spits and spats you have either give it
more gas or hold it steady so it will not spit and spat

Put in a can of octane booster, 103 or better, or drain out the bad fuel, replace the fuel filter.

If the car runs bad at low speed or low idle, it could be a vacuum leak. Vacuum gauges are inexpensive
