Hi there,

You problem is most likely a bad spark plug wire or spark plug. I would start with the wires and then chenge the plugs. Most likely you have a wire shorting out under load.

I had the same problem on my 1999 century and it was cured after replacing the wires. My 1998 Regal GS was running rough and after I replaced the wires it runs great!

Good luck!

I would check to be on the safe side the fuel filter is going in the right direction. The arrow is pointing towards the engine away from the fuel tank, Then you need to make sure the fuel pump wiring connections are good contact and did not come loose when driving.

The overheating might be caused by a thermostat stuck closed, have it replaced. That should fix the overheating, as for the hesitating, run a scan on the ECM module to make sure you dont have any codes, clear if any and fix anything that might've gotten damaged from the overheating.

96 corolla hesitates and jerks


The jerking and shuddering at 45-50 mph seems like it could be a transmission/torque converter problem. Check your transmission fluid. Make sure it is at the right level, and that it is not dark or burnt. It should be a bright red or pink.
