Default [b] BALLZ LESS!!! THE HELL!!! [/b]

I bought my car in August of last year. When I bought it, my car could lay rubber in to thrid. Now if you punch it the car like "chokes". You know when it reves then drops back and forth kinda like rabbit hopping with out any real exselaration. I have a bad feeling it'* either my tires (which unfortunatly had to be changed out with shity tires.) or my Trans. Bacially two of the only things I haven't fix since getting it. Any suggestion on what it could be?

Hard to tell from your description. How old are the plugs/wires?

I would think it may be the plugs and/or wires. I was havin a similar problem but after changing those it was much better. My second thought would be the tranny but i dont know, just a possibility.

Check your codes. Easy to do (check TechINFO for instructions).
Possibly your MAF sensor or O2 sensor. Both are fairly easy to change.
But start with the basics first like Will said.
Do a thorough tune-up. Plugs, plug wires, air filter, fuel filter, pcv valve, clean throttle body, and run some injector cleaner through (Sea foam works great).
Also, you might get your catalytic convertor checked.
Good luck,
Martin

time for a tune-up! I'm sure a little bit here and there wouldn't hurt. Defintely makes me feel alot better when i'm driving knowing everything is in tune.

With in the last 4months I have had 2 tune ups, I've changed out my spark plugs and wires, O2 Censor, clean my throttle body, a full oil change including air filter, flushed all my fluids, run the injector cleaner, changed out my heater core, changed out my itle control valve, recalibrate and changed out my TPS, had my cat looked at and my entire exhaust system trouble shot, changed out my thermostat, gotten new tire'*. There is more I just have forgotten at the moment. I know I need a new exhaust tip and an alignment. There are no codes popping up. Tried that already. There should be NOTHING wrong. Just have no ballz. I think I'll take the old girl in for another tune up when I get my alignment… Maybe that will help.

When this started happening to me it was because i had several vacume leaks and my supercharger and throttle body ended up being loose. this more than likely isnt the case with urs as there are so many other things that could be wrong. I would reccomend that u park the car for now because any kind of big vibrations can wreak havoc on ur car.

I think it may be since u got new tires. Doesn't make much sense but only thing i can think of after your long *** list of fix ups.
