how many miles are on this buggy? which motor does it have?

1 of 1 people found this helpful.

the three essential components being fuel, air, and timed spark and hopefully valves as well. Even if you've got a mechancial distributor there is a crank angle and/or cam sensor(s). Either might be sending an erratic signal to the ECU.

I had the same problem, if you can have your codes read all the better. When my car started driving like yours I replaced the camshaft sensor and then the MAF sensor. You can buy both online, look on ebay for best deals :)
