without any other information, it sounds like your vehicle is misfiring under a load. could be spark plugs, spark plug wires or ignition coils, depending on the vehicle.

If you were able to drive your car with a scanner hooked up you should be able to watch the misfire counter and see what cylinder or cylinders that are misfiring. If your car is older and doesn't have a misfire counter, maybe look at the mode 6 pids for misfire. If the car doesn't have that, then you may have to change parts and monitor the results.

Ok thanks so much, I will surely get the plugs and wires checked that's a good start for me. I sure will update as soon as I get it looked at. Car is a 2008 Saturn aura 3.5 v6
