Car starts to sputter when at a red light or stop sign?

Mine was doing something similar I had the injectors flushed at an oil change place. it was about $50 bucks but it help with the hard staring and hiccup at stops. it also gave me about 1-2 miles per gallon better milage. After that I also changed the plugs and Air filter.

Engine sputters and hiccups when driving


Sounds like you have a cylinder misfire. Is check engine light on ?, Have you had the vehicle somewhere to get a code scan? My assumption is that you have an ignition problem that is causing the rough idle and jerk feeling while driving.
Take the vehicle to a shop and have them diagnose the driveability problem that you are having.

If your mechanics say the mass air flow sensor, fuel pump and fuel filter is good then check your intake Manifold Gasket. It is a hard 1/4 inch thick plastic gasket that cracks frequently and causes sputtering when letting off your gas pedal and eventually lead to stalling at red lights and stop signs if cracked bad enough.

Lacking power, funny smell near exhaust and sputters and feels like it is going to stall when stopping for a red light.


Rotten egg smell is usually a bad converter. sweet smell is antifreeze meaning blown head gasket or worse.
