I've been dealing with this for a couple months now.
Shortly after starting the engine starts, it will begin to sputter and drop RPMs as if it was about to stall out, the RPMs will climb back and the idle will smooth out. It goes through this cycle on average maybe 3-4 times and then is fine for the remainder of my trip.
If I don't let have seizure time, It will do it while I'm accelerating in lower gears a few times and then run fine. When it happens while I'm driving, I will try to give it gas but it's as if it's not getting any more gas. After maybe 5-6 seconds of this, it will make a loud pop and everything will be fine. When it gets gas again, it get's a lot of gas and bucks pretty badly sometimes. I've gotten a bit used to it and I'm pretty quick on the clutch when it happens.
I replaced the fuel filter a couple weeks ago. I've searched this a bunch but it seems like nobody has the same symptoms so I come to you guys for help. I was thinking about replacing the oxygen sensor and cleaning out the throttle body, do you think it would help?
