    I think it differs. Mine, car felt like it hit something while i was accelerating, engine mgmt light came on (the orange one that isn't in the handbook), and the engine stutters and misses.

    If you try to put your foot down at all (not hard), it feels like there's a blockage somewhere.

    When the car was cold it felt ok, then as it warmed up a bit it felt like it was missing on one cyilinder just as i accelerated then got worse and is just lumpy now - no performance whatsoever ???

    First time mine went, it performed badly for a little while, as if it was missing, before anything drastic happened....
