Is the check engine light on?

 

If so, do you know what codes are stored?

This a common symptom of the computer going bad. There is a Service Bulletin EG042-07 and the computer is covered by warranty for 8yr/80,000miles. Have the Dealer replace it, they should have one in stock as we replace these on a weekly basis, and all should be well with the car running normally.
