Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!There are many things that will cause the engine to run poorly. It may be as simple as worn ignition components, it may be low fuel pressure or fuel contamination, it could be an inaccurate sensor causing the engine to run rich or lean. Cylinder sealing/compression and cam timing issues will also cause the engine to run poorly but the problem shouldn't be intermittent.Has anything been done to try to diagnose the issue?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just had the engine change another thing is when i move the distributor to move timing up does not do nothing it showed nock sensor was not working fixed that problem and still same thing

What problem would the nock sensor give out
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.
A knock sensor issue would set a fault code and/or cause spark knock on acceleration.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Would it also give problems to the timing and make it seem like there is a miss fire
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.
Yes, incorrect ignition or cam timing will cause the engine to run poorly.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok thanks would let u know if the knock sensor was the hole problem
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.
Ok!
