I was driving at around 120km/h, when suddenly the car jolts. I mash the gas as it seems to go away. A few minutes later it happens again.

Eventually it becomes so frequent that I have to pull over. While pulled over I mash the gas, no response - then all of a sudden it spools up and bounces off at 2000 rpm.

Check engine light comes on eventually. I limp my way home being careful not to touch 2000 rpm or else the car won't respond to throttle for a few seconds.

Help!

Dave,

I thought I had a fuel or spark problem after I did the M50 conversion. Found out the fuse in the trunk was cracked. That friggin' $0.50 piece caused me so much stress! And if it isn't that...look into the M20's AFM as a possibity too.
