Car bucks when accelerating

Asked by Jul 19, 2017 at 08:05 AM about the 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Sometimes my car bucks when it gets to around
15 mph and the Trac Off light comes on and it runs
rough but when you can get the speed up it runs
fine till you have to stop again. I changed the spark
plugs and the throttle position sensor but it didn't
help.
