Hello,
This is indicating that there is a misfire in the engine, try not to drive it in this condition, you can damage your catalytic converter. You'll need to have the diagnostic trouble codes read out and diagnosed. I can tell you that on this model, it is common to see the ignition coils fail and cause this problem.
