Please Don't Tell Me its the Trans
this morning after driving my Mother to work, (about 5 mi) i stopped at the store to get something. When I got back into the car, and put it into reverse, it almost stalled. I continued to drive home and every time I stopped at a light, the car was bucking and running rough, if i put it in neutral, it runs fine, park too. when pulling away from the light, it was bucking and surging and seemed to be low on power until I reached about 15mph, then it seems fine.
after letting it cool down and checking all the fluids, all seemed well, so I decided to replace the fuel filter (god only knows the last time that thing was changed).
on the 1mi drive to Autozone every thing was fine, running great. But when I went to back out of my space it almost stalled again, and while driving it was bucking again just like before.
here is what has me confused, about halfway home from Autozone,
everything went back to normal.
I installed the new filter, but that didn't change anything.
scanned for codes, nothing, not even a pending code.
sorry for the long post, I just want to get as much info out there as I can.
1996 Mercury Grand Marquis GS ~89,000mi, Willow Green inside and out. It's very green.
1998 Chevrolet Malibu Base V6 187,000mi (sold)
