Hello, my name is***** for the question. If I am not online when you return please give me some time to get back to you. Can you tell me if the check engine light is coming on when this occurs? How many miles are on the vehicle?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
mileage 187607 check engine light went on only once for a few seconds but then shut off currently it is not on

Thank you. It does sound like you have an intermittent misfire from either a coil or possibly a clogged injector. If the check engine light had come on then there should be a code stored in the computer. I would start by running some fuel cleaner such as seafoam or Lucas through the fuel system.
