Question about 1997 Hyundai Accent
When I press the accelerator down, the car is stuttering and shuddering like a Kangaroo, before pulling away, in all lower gears. Then when stopped in traffic light it stalls and cuts out or shudders and only moves with a lot of heavy coaxing.
It sounds like there could be 2 possible problems. 1) the spark plugs might be too old and do not convert power efficiently causing it to shudder or even stall when power needs increase (I suggest a tune-up). Or 2) the timing could be off and needs to be adjusted by a mechanic, while you're at it you might want to see how worn your timing belt is, if it no longer grips it can cause off time explosions in the valve chambers and you'll definitely get some shaking action and even stalling and if it snaps, the car won;t be going anywhere (til the belt it gets replaced).
