My car started stuttering the other day after admittedly driving it a little hard on the highway (had to rush my wife to the airport). The jerking motions are noticable at low speeds - specifically if you maintain the car below 40 Kph but it disappears when accelerating. The check engine light came on for a few hours then was gone by the next day.
Had this problem for about two days now.
My car's an '07 sedan, automatic CVT transmission.
Your assistance will greatly be appreciated.
If they run ethanol in your fuel there is really zero need for any sort of drygas measure as the ethanol itself performs that function.
Sorry for the delayed response. But it turns out that one of my spark plugs wasn't firing well. So the diagnostic machine read a cylinder misfire.
Switched the coil from the misfiring cylinder just to ensure that it wasn't the culprit too - turned out it was OK so just replaced the set of plugs with Iridium tipped ones.
Car runs fine now.
I suspect the shop I've been taking it for regular service didn't replace the plugs the last time. I suspect a lot of things weren't done that I paid for whenever I took my car there.
Never going back there again.
Anyway, thanks everyone for the input, you've all been much help.
