    any codes, how's your tranny fluid? maybe clean your mass air, if you have an oiled filter ie:k&n... just spray it with some brake cleaner.

    i doubt it but is your traction control on??

    pretty new tires, i dont have a traction control. i cleaned the throttle body but thats all when i put the petal to the floor like the car wants to hesatate. it ran fine when i got it 2 weeks ago but now is like a v6, and had had the tranny fluid changed.

    make sure your alternator is good and charging the battery...i just had to change mine and it fixed it..it may be going bad on you..ide take it to get it checked..sounds to me like a firing problem

    Sounds just like my car with the traction control on. I would check all of the usual shit(fuel pressure, tranny juice, etc.).
