Default any ideas?

I was wondering why sometimes when I'm going up a slight hill sometimes, not all the time. I get like a pulsing or vibrating feeling in the gas pedal... only does it when I keep it at a constant speed when going up, not when I let off or put more into it. Usually around 30mph if I remember correctly...

Most likely if it'* over 48mph with the torque converter locked up. That would be an ignition related "chuggle".

Under 30mph...could be ignition related. When was your last tune up in time and milage?

Wow...low mileage.

Take a look at the spark plug wires. Do they have numbers on them.?

Yeah I like the low mileage... I knew the previous owners too. And I'll go look on the wires give me a few minutes.

Ok.. those are the original spark plug wires that were put on your motor when the car was built.

After this many years..it should be time for a replacement. And spark plugs would be a good idea while you are there.

aka..14 year old spark plug wires...they served you well.

Many like Belden wires from Napa, I went to Advance and got AC Delco replacements. My thoughts were ...the first set lasted this long...I like the quality. Basically you want a lifetime premium wire that will treat you good. (stay away from Bosch, Bonne'* dislike that name)

Plugs.. again.. AC Delco is a good replacement and the original equipment for your car, a bunch of member here also use NGK which are another direct replacement.
