Is the check engine light on? Have you had your car looked at recently by a mechanic?

Yea they changed the oil.... And told me that it was the gas... But all the gas from every store can't be bad ... U knw... And now the lights on the inside don't work and the lock button dnt work now too... Plz tell me how to fix it ..

does the idle jump when it does run? can you keep it running if you give it gas ?

5,965

by jump i mean surge and dip (go up n down radically)

935

could be anything from the timing being off a few teeth to a bad fuel pressure vacuum
