Hello, I'm Chris. Thanks for seeking us for help.
Does this seem like its occurring because the engine is running poor like bogging down or misfiring or the transmission is not upshifting?
Any warning lights on while running?
Did you install new fuel?
What liter engine?
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
Thanks Chris

The engine is running poorly it feels as if the engine is running on three cylinders. I don't see any warning lights and it is a 6 cylinder engine. I just filled up the tank the day before the incident.

Based on the downtime and the misfire. Lets check the compression on all cylinders. You want to see 160 plus. Then perform a tune up, plugs and wires.
