This sounds like a misfire. If it's possible you could have the codes read by a parts store, this will let you know which cylinder is misfiring. It's safe to drive it a limited amount. It won't leave you stranded, but could cause some catalytic converter damage with raw fuel going into the exhaust system. More then likely it needs a new ignition coil on one of the cylinders.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to make this a 5 star answer for you.

Thanks so, standing in front the car the left side is the even and starting with the first one nearest me is 2,4,6

If you are standing in front of the car looking at the engine, the right side is your evens, and 2 is the first cylinder on that side.

Well that's confusing since you said sitting in driver seat odd is on the left

I'm sorry, driver side sitting in it is the even numbers, passenger side is odd. Sorry for the confusion. Left is always the driver side when working with cars. Unless of course you are in England or Australia.
