    Sounds like a misfire. Is your check engine lamp on? Are there any
    trouble codes stored?

    You'll need some sort of code reader, or will need to take it somewhere
    that has one. In many places, Auto Zone advertises it will read codes for
    free. I'm guessing you have a code something like P030x where x represents
    the misfiring cylinder. You can then check the plug, wire, etc. on that
    cylinder. You can check them beforehand, but won't find out if there are
    any other trouble codes which may indicate other relevant problems.
