      easy fix it sounds like. Fuel filter. around 20 bucks installed

      It is your transmission going … good luck, its an expensive job to do.

      Sounds like you are having trouble with the transmission, which stinks because that is probably the priciest thing to repair. Go get it checked out before the metal is stripped even more and it costs more money.

      could be a clogged fuel filter

      Could be the transmission, could be the fuel pump or fuel injector/carburetor.
