I thought this was gonna be a post about some assholes at a stoplight situation :giggle:

Sounds like either a fuel delivery problem, or a traction control problem....I can't help you any further, but I'm sure the others will be along to post more helpful suggestions..

Try changing the fuel filter first. If that does not help then check the fuel pressure. Low pressure can cause this problem. Also if the ground wire(s) to the fuel pump are damaged you will get problems with the pump and sending unit. You may have a clogged filter, loose ground wire, fuel pressure regulator acting up or a fuel pump about to fail.
