I have had this happen to me 3 times now, and I am not sure if I should be concerned or not.

It happened when stopped, in drive, once waiting to turn left, the other waiting at red lights. When I was waiting to turn, the whole car shuddered and it almost stalled (dropped to about 150 - 200 rpm) then surged and settled down. The times at the lights, it was when I went to pull away, it had no power, the RPM dropped then came back with a jerk as it took off.

I was damp out those days, it was near freezing and wet out. So I don't know if it is just a moisture thing, or if I might have a crack in a wire or coil.

I have not seen any check engine lights, so it is not throwing any codes that I know of. But my mileage has sucked since I got it in October, sometimes I think it is running a little rich by the smell of the exhaust.

What do you all think?
