Hi ed:

first off 2.2 Liter engine or 2.4 quard dual overhead cam engine? does it turn on a check engine light? if so stop by a big box auto parts store and have the car scanned for codes and see what codes set and let me know what the codes are a code will leave a thumb print as to maybe the root problem here. could be lots of issues here. once I know what codes set and what engine I can give you a better idea as to what is going on.
