It sounds like it's popping in my air filter
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.

Ok, the most common cause of this would be a faulty crank sensor, ignition module, low fuel pressure or bad fuel injectors.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
what do you think I should start with
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.

I would rule out the fuel system first by checking fuel pressure. IF that checks out good, then go after the injectors followed by the crank sensor and then ignition control module.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
you're sure it will be one of those 3
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.

No, that is why you need to run some checks.
