Sounds like it'* doing it under load.......
That could be the plugs and wires.......could also be the fuel filter.
All of which is part of a good tune-up...
How many miles do you have on it sine the last tune-up?

you can go to "TechInfo" and read about plug and wires......but everyone here says stay with the AC delco plugs......and use a good wire like Taylor or MSD.

Good luck

That sounds like a good deal. It wouldn't hurt to take it in for a tune up. Always a good thing to do whenever you buy a new car. It will be the best thing to do. At least you will know what has to be done now and what can wait. Plus it will answer nagging questions.
