    Engine misfire... Usually one or more of the coils over each of the spark plugs... Problem is which, there are 8 of them!!! IF check engine light is on, have it scanned to find which cylinder is at fault... Also... 'scanner' can run a cylinder contribution test to locate problem cylinder... Bottom line... Get it tested!!
