Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to assist you
Does your check engine light come on?
Ok, so we may or may not have codes in the computer. The most likely problem is an ignition misfire but without codes we have to move on to the slightly harder way. Try putting it in gear and with one foot on the brake and the other on the accelerator run it up to 2000 rpm or so...whatever you can do without it pulling away from you. See if this way you can reproduce the symptoms. If you can then what you need to do is get a clear plastic hose with a 1/4" inside diameter and cut it into 6 sections approximately 1" long. Take each plug wire off at the coil end and put the clear plastic over the coil end and inside of the spark plug boot. With that set up if you can make it miss you will see which spark goes away. Let me know if you can do this and wht your results are?
