Customer Question

I was driving and it started sputtering and shaking with hardly any response to acceleration. Auto zone ran text and said evap and misfire on 4 and 6. We changed evap and all spark plugs. It's no longer making the noise and idles better but when trying to give it gas to go up a hill or increase speed the rpm's run up and there is little if any acceleration until going down hill. There is also a constant humming when running even parked that almost sounds like the noise made when your out of power steering fluid.
JA: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?
Customer: I have checked the power steering so that doesn't appear to be the issue. Just best example I know to use to describe the noise made when the car is on
JA: What is the model/year of your Buick?
Customer: 2009 Buick Enclave cxl
JA: Are you fixing your Enclave yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: We have replaced the evap and all spark plugs
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I can't think of anything else
