Depenging on the last time the car had a tune up you may just have weak spark plugs and wires giving a poor spark and causing it to missfire under a load

Change fuel filter. add can of SEAFOAM to 1/2 tank of Premium gas. change pcv valve. make sure you add every 3-5000 miles another can of Seafoam to tank, and it will help with EGS(ethanol gas syndrome)/ you've got goop and water in everything. do these ASAP, as EGS will fry a fuel pump in a heart beat.

Why does my 1998 sebring idle fine but sputter badly under load.


Does it use spark plug wires or individual ignition coils for the each plug?. My 98 intrepid uses coils and occasionally I have to change them out cause it would start to miss when normal temperature was achieved. If it uses wires, try replacing them, along with the spark plugs.

Trembling while shifting on '02 F150 King Ranch


First-NEVER add anything to an automatic trans.
Your vehicle should use Mercon V --PERIOD
Change it at least three times, to get the Lucas out.

Have the TPS Sensor checked out.
You most likely have a Tran Pack Solenoid going bad.
It is bolted to the valve body. You can do it yourself

After 20 miles of driving it shifts late and hard from 1st to 2nd


many things can cuase this, the first thing to do is have the computer scaned, there should be codes it there, these codes will give a general idea of the problem. you should also check the trany fluid level,(engine warm,in park, level ground). there may be a few things to check, the distributor cap and rotor, also the wires. you may have weak fuel preasure,or even a bad module, so start by having the codes pulled and will go from there,also it doesnt start now,check the fuel preasure and also check for spark at the plugs.
