Just recently my car studders whenever I press on the accelerator. First it studders then "jumps up" (sometimes I get the studdering followed by a big jerk before resume normal acceleration) . I'm thinking it is fuel/air related.


I'm thinking of replacing the fuel filter first then tackle on to other fuel related parts. I also plan on cleaning out my IM for any possible carbon build-up. Am I on the right track?

you're on the right track, you should clean out the throttle body and air filter while you're at it, it also sounds like you need a tune up. Whens the last time your spark plugs and distributor cap where changed?

i would check your ignition and starter stuff first so you dont have to spend any money. clean the crap of your throttle cable too. make sure to grease a little bit. that helped me.

I may use Sea Foam to clean out my IM.

Last tune-up was done in April '08.

Then my vote is EGR. Take off the egr valve and look inside. If its caked with carbon then you have a diagnosis.

Just say no to sea-foam.

Actually, there was a crack on the distributor cap. There was a lot of moisture inside and the rotor was done. Replaced both parts...no more hesitation.
