I have a 1997 Camaro RS with a 3.8L V6. The problem I'm having is that when I go to accelerate normally, the reaction from the car is hesitant at best to about 2500 RPM's. After this is smoothens out. When I put the hammer to the floor however, it reacts like any other Camaro would. It also likes to do it on the highway especially on hills, which leads me to believe it is fuel or timing related. It feels more like it's choking out rather than misfiring, but it not to say it isn't. I was just hoping someone else has had a similar problem and could give me a solution. Thanks
