Yeah my car has been acting up of late. It doesn't have enough horsepower to even get up a hill without having some momentum. The car shakes alot when trying to accellarate up a hill and seems to make a back firing noise underneith the front passanger seat. There is alot of possibilities but it must have something to do with the engine bc the check engine light comes on. Does anyone know what possibley could be wrong?

I am definatly no expert but this sounds like it would be a transmission problem on account of the shaking and that the transmissions on these cars are a weak link in the drive train.

Also, 96+ has OBDII which, if I'm not mistaken, can set off the check engine light if the transmission has an error.

As for what problem the trans could have I don't know, maybe the torque converter lock up function is malfunctioning.

Maybe it´s just your sparkplugs/wires going bad???I had 2 faulty spark plug wires and had almost the same problems you described.

It´s easy and cheap to replace so why don´t give it a try...
