hi there,

im cam, a licenced diagnostic tech

it sounds like you have a misfire in the engine.

it could be just needing a tune up, or one of the coil packs are also cutting out

i would scan the system for a trouble code. this can help pinpoint the area of the problem

but it think it will end up being a coil pack and tune up
