Helllo and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question. What is going on with the vehicle? Does it run ok? Does it run rough or stall out? Is the check engine light on.. are there any codes in the computer?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Vehicle runs OK as long as it's $2,000. Check engine light is not coming on. When it hits 4000 4500 RPM it starts coughing sputtering like it's not getting enough fuel. So I'm not sure what's going on this is what I'm running that it's worse and there is a severe power drain on the engine.
