Engine misfinring/puttering, HELP

Hey guys,

My car was running fine yesterday... Then this morning when i turned it on to go to work it was puttering. Just to give you more detail, it was idling around 500-600rpm, shaking bad, and making a puttering exhaust note. It was really weak too, by that i mean unresponsive and slow to get going.

Any ideas what it is? maybe misfire, bad sparkplug...? Any help is much appreciated...


Thanks,
Jarred D

definitely misfiring.. pull each plug while the car is running to see which cylinder is dead. if you pull each wire try doing a tuneup if you havnt done so in more than a year.. change spark plugs, wires, distributor cap/rotor, change engine oil.
