Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

What have the local mechanic done so far to fix this issue?

nothing but telling me to keep brining it back. I would rather converse on the computer or text.

So there could be a few issues, first being a misfire upon acceleration, when a load is applied to the weak point in the ignition probably being the coils will begin to have a misfire, another issues with those vehicles is carbon buildup in the upper portion of the intake, every 100k I always tell customers to have the entire top end cleaned,
