I have a 2002 Cougar. All of a sudden today (mid-day, after being driven at least twice in the morning without incident) my car started to jerk/studder a little while I was stopped and waiting to turn. From this point the problem has continued. It is usually only when I am completely stopped at a light or something, and then when I begin to go again it will sputter a little. It is fine once I get to speed, but occasionally it will do a light sputter when I am driving with a slight acceleration.
I have looked up alot already, and have come to the following possibilities:
I did get gas recently (Friday), but have only driven it 3 times before today. So it very well could be the gas, but I would have though it would have shown up before now. I put a Gas Treatment in tonight though.
Any help is appreciated. I am trying to get this figured out without having to bring it in and pay a hefty amount. Thanks! Sorry this was so long!
