Look at the spark plugs for starters. Replace if necessary with Bosch (regular part number 7955 @ $1.99 each ) or Champion (part number RC9YC @$1.99 each). So not too bad to do as preventative maintenance. Let me know what you see. If you need a manual, let me know as well.

The car was running fine we drove it to the store no Problem with the Jaguar 1989 XJ6 the car was running fine we drove it to the grocery store and came out it would not start put gas in it and it...

Sounds like fuel pump is bad. Running fuel low puts alot of strain on electric fuel pumps. The fuel acts as a coolant for the pump, that's why it's advisable to keep at least 1/2 tank. It sounds like your pump finally just gave up. Pump might be making noise but it could just be spinning and not pumping. Have someone test your fuel pressure to confirm.

Today I was driving my car and out of nowhere I instantly lost power, it began to sputter and shake semi-violently. It shook a little harder at lower rpms but still did it at high ones. I took the car home...

Could be a Mass Air Flow sensor going bad, or it could be a computer that isn't firing all of the fuel injectors when needed.

Test the Mass Air Flow sensor by idling the car, in Park, and hitting the intake tube that has the Mass Air Flow sensor integrated into it. If the car stalls, you found the problem, the MAF sensor.

Good luck on this repair.

Ruff idle on my 2001 for taurus. At higher rpms it runs fine.

It is most likely you wheel alignment (costs about 20 bucks to have your wheels aligned) or try checking the tire Pressure to make sure they're all even maybe hope this helps

1998 bmw 528I runs ruff after starting,smooths out after 30 sec.

If you let it warm up first it should not run ruff .Its the car staying in low gear to warm up the catalytic converter faster so that it can cut the amount of pollution that the is car producing .For the clean-air laws.
