came on, and i drove home which is a distance of 5-6 miles, it acted like it
was trying to cough about every 6-7 seconds maybe...NO ENGINE LIGHT

fuel...i put gas treatment soluntion in with $20 more of fuel...plzz...any

Yes, moisture in the fuel, Isopropyl base additive is what you need for the moister. But you may want to check the fuel pressure. If the fuel filter has not ben changed in awhile replace that first. Fuel pump or fuel regulator can be a cause also.
