Any warning lights on?

Are you behind on any maintenance steps?

Does it feel like the car has the hiccups and jerks?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No warning lights, current on maintenance steps, as far as the Hiccups and jerks, YES
Expert:  Chris (aka - Moose) replied 1 year ago.

With the current information the symptoms are pointing to ignition misfires possibly occurring. Can you tray a tune up or a power balance test with a scan tool to see if its misfiring and if so which cylinder?
