Ok this is an interminted problem but every once in a while when accelerating its likes its bogged down and I have very little power untill I hit 3k Rpm's then it picks up and goes... It almost feels like the same when my cat was going out and the flow was blocked and I had not power but it goes away at 3k :huh:

u have a v6 dont u? mine does that thats why im asking. but its like once a blue moon that it does it, but when it does it, it does it bad, right till 31-33k rpm, then it kicks it though and even barks the tires when it picks back up, even in third.

i dont know, mine did it A LOT, well not a lot, but more when my motor mounts were broken. I think my engine was actually shifted back just slightly so i wasnt getting full throttle. Pop ur hood tomorrow (or tonight if u still really feel like it) and dont turn it on or anything, but just put ur foot all the way down on the gas and see if ur throttle opens all the way. Thats one thing it could be. Other than that, i dont really know. Someone will probably chime in and just say get a V8, which im doing next year :biggthump

:jester: just dont tell em :biggthump ...It might be a whole bunch of things, maybe a loose ground to the fuel pump, maybe ur blaster coil isnt makin enough voltage, these are just guesses, but could be causes, because if the engine is charging enough juice out of the altenator until higher RPMs, it might not be sparking enough, there fore bogging. I kinda made that up, but sounds like it would make sense to me. :jester:
