Sounds like the coil packs are bad. Have a local parts house retrieve the codes from the check engine light. If the light is flashing it means the engine has a major malfunction in the electrical system. If the exhaust smells heave of gas fumes this is most likely your problem.

Hi:
Not sure of all what is wrong, but one thing I can suggest is to have your computer codes downloaded to see what it is showing as a fault code. Only a few codes can cause the check engine light to flash, and the most common is a cylinder misfire. Your car most likely has an ignition module or coil pack failing, and that problem is causing most of your symptoms. You can usually get your local autoparts store, such as Autozone, to scan your car for free, and tell you what is tripping the check engine light, and then you can go from there!

The coil could be breaking down under normal operating temps, or the pick inside the distributor. Either that or you may have oxygen sensors that are going bad, do you have a check engine light come on when it acts up?

Time for the dealer to take a look. You need special skill and special tools to diagnose this not to mention years of experience with electronic engine control systems.

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.

I have an 83 camaro z28 with a 5.0 305 engine, why does it sputter when accelerating past 30 miles per hour


Could be any number of things. Bad coil or weak spark, low fuel pressure or clogged fuel filter. A breakdown of the ignition subsystems equivalent to points and firing sensors.

You should check EGR by very temporarily plugging vacuum line and see if performance is changed. Sometimes blocked exhaust Catalytics or collapsed muffler baffles will plug up the exhaust and require too much push to clear the pipes.
