Question about Cars & Trucks
Cant see it being an ign. module. Sounds more like a coil, or a fuel problem. I'd say it sounds like a coil though. If the rotor or module look burned or corroded, I'd change them too Good luck, Cheers from Nova Scotia

Vacuum leaks,Use carby cleaner sprayed lightly around suspect areas like injector seals engine will react and pin point a leak.H/T leads could be tracking or breaking down.Plugs may require replacement.Injectors could be dirty,try can of injector cleaner next time you fill the vehicle up.Is the air box and lid securely fastened and intake tube to throttle body leak free with no holes etc?There are a number of things it could be and tried to cover a few of them as its hard to imagine engine condition etc.Check that advance/****** can on distributor is functioning correctly(not leaking)Could also be air flow meter anyway let me know how you go Good luck

Sounds like possible block in catalyst or broken up and blocked catalyst or oxygen sensor fault causing fuel/air mixture confusion if you take first o2 sensor out of exhaust manifold/pipe and see if performance back then this will confirm blockage although will be slightly noisy while testing cos sensor removed.

what is anti-theft light doing? It should come on solid for about 2 sec after you turn the key on then turn off. If it is flashing after this then it is not seeing the computer chip in the key and you have a PATS problem.

Take it back. It's most likely failed.
Your most likely about to go out of the 10 year 200,000 mile warranty so stay on top of them about it. After your out there is no help for them.

I have the same car. Same problem. We replaced the fuse box and it fixed the problem. But here we are 6 months later and the problem came back. So for a quick fix you can replace the fuse box. I'll let you know what the real problem is when i get it to the dealer.
