wonky acceleration
I try to accelerate from 2nd gear in my 02 impreza ouback sport and i put my foot down from 2k rpms and the car jerks a little and the acceleration is not smooth.The acceleration problem happens any time i try to really accelerate hard.I have no problems with the clutch. The car idles fine,starts fine and i have no other noticeable problems. Any ideas ?

Its misfiring is guess one. Plugs, wires, coil, poor fuel delivery come to mind.

Got a MIL light on?

My MIL light says I have an evap leak from the rear of the car . Could that be it ?

is the check engine light on?

if so what codes are you getting?

it could also be a knock sensor but it would likely have a code
