I have a 90 3.8L na and sometimes when im driving usually just for the first 10 15 min my car will surge it almost feels like the rearend is locking up. Three years ago when i bought the car it did it like once a month when cold out but now that is like -10 it does it alot and is very annoying........what could this be u-joints? I bought a fuel filter yesterday and am gonna change that cuz im not sure what it is and i havent changed the fuel filter in like 50 000 KM soo worth a try.....
Anyone have an idea what it could be?????
