If you put cheap gas in car, this may be the issue. Try Premium gas before going to a repair shop. However, if you live in OC California, you can call Mike McClain @ 949-581-6285 Import Auto Works. He has been fixing my cars for the past 8 years. Excellent and honest.

If you by fuel from gas stations that are shadey, there might be water in your gas tank. Try to siphon some out and let it sit in a jar, you will see. Our garage has ran into that one before. Your cars computer and fuel injection will keep it trying to run but the water just cuts it out
