Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if the engine is running rough. There are quite a few things that can cause it to run rough an it will require some testing to determine what is going on. You could have an ignition system issue, an inaccurate sensor, an internal engine issue, a wiring problem, it could be a fuel quality issue or even the engine controller itself.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to see if any fault codes have set. Have you checked for codes?
