Alright, this morning before I went to class, I let my car warm up to running temp. On my way to school I had to downshift a lil and step on it a bit, AS SOON AS my RPM's get to around 3200-4000 the car starts to buck and jump, slow down and get faster. What the hell is the problem??! I haven't really been beating on the 6 lately so I dunno what the heck the problem is?? Anyone know?? Or have any idea?!

Could be a lot of things. Might be misfiring, o2 sensor. Replace your plugs first and see what happens.

I have brand new plugs and wires on it. This didn't start until this morning. It SOUNDS like it's boosting OK but I'm not familiar with turbo's (new car for me. Anyone have anymore ideas?

One of my friends put new Champion plugs in his car and one was misfiring, it was defective.

The plugs had about 210 miles on em b4 this started happening. This only happens after about 3200 when the turbo kicks it. I was cruising on the highway at about 68mph at 2900-3000 without any probs. but once I get on it and push the RPM's up there is a lot of hesitaion

plug gap

Did you take the plugs off another car? If so are they gapped right?

This sounds a lot like MY problem that's as yet undiagnosed. Is it backfiring at all?

The plugs are gapped correctly, they are brand new. No it is not backfiring, it's not making any noise when it hesitates besides throwing me forward and back in my seat and bucking. I have not yet verified the timing yet (do not know how to). All this s*it happens as soon as I get in the power band. TexasMX6GT, What else is yours doing?

Replaced your fuel filter lately? Could be partially clogged. Only shows at high RPM when flow is at max.
