Good morning, there could be a few things causing this. I'm assuming the check engine light is on, have you had the diagnostic codes pulled?

the engine lite is on taking to get put on machine on monday
Expert:  K. Wiggins replied 1 year ago.

Thanks, ***** ***** you describe it sounds like either the shop has the firing order wrong or the ignition timing is not adjusted properly. Setting the timing properly on this model can be tedious and if it's off will cause it to run terribly. If you'd like the firing order and timing info let me know.

Also feel free to reply back monday with the codes.
