Possibilities?

If i put the pedal to the floor the car is hesitant and kinda skips, but if im gradual and easy it wont do that. I think its gotten progressivly worse, wondering what it could be? It had new plugs and wires in october so i guess its not as simple as that..

That's more of a throttle gas area.. change out your fuel filter could be cloged and when u stomp on it its to clogged to let it all go throught but when u eas into it flows slower .. run some seafoam through your induction it we clean your top end put some in your gas as well it clean the fuel system out .. lines ..injectores .. etc.. still change the filter tho

fuel filter is under the car near the rear axle its like in the center and it has two lines hooked to each end. youtube the seafoam how to vids . but when i did it i poured some in the gas tank and let the vaccumm line suck in the rest of the seafoam and watch the smoke just fly out ur exhaust. make sure u use the seafoam before u change fuel filter

Ok so i put the seamfoam into the tank, (full tank) should i change the fuel filter after the tank is used? Also ill just use same thread for this problem too, when im driving the temp gauge will randomly go up, causing my eng light to come on, ive changed the thermostat already and put new coolant in..

I didnt see it leaking anywhere. Should i just drive it without the thermostat in there? It wont blow hot air inside the car but it wont overheat either right?

if it doesnt heat up inside, and if it hasnt been overheating outside lately either, then my guess is ur gauge might be broke.

Re: Possibilities?

Vacuum leak around EGR, plugs, wires, ign coil. Get some seafoam and perform induction cleaning. If that aint it, new clutch or transmission.
That's my opinion half heartily.

Thought it just made a constant flow of coolant throught the engine? I still dont understand how to put seafoam through the vaccum lines, i just filled the tank and put a bottle of it in there..

Without a thermostat that's what it will do, it will take to long to heat up to normal operating temperature, and it could slowly start to overheat, thermostats make sure it always has perfect amount of flow.

While car is running, put a drinking straw inside the can of Seafoam, pull out pcv valve, put end of pcv valve to straw and it will start sucking it in- That's it!
