Stuttering At Lower Revs

07 March 2013 - 07:58 PM

I have a 1997 ford escort 1.4 petrol, and the last couple its has started stuttering/juddering under acceleration, its like not enough fuel is going in or something? When this is happeneing, there is hardly any power unless i put my foot right down then the revs rise slowly and all of a sudden it takes off like a beast. i need to know if this is an easy fix as times are hard and im semi skilled and would give it a good shot at fixing it myself if i could.
Ive not run it out of fuel, and tho only thing i can think of having done recently before that was the oil was low so i topped it up with 20w50 mineral as it had done 150k miles, im not sure thats the right oil, but its the closest description i had on the oil bottles to my car.


Thanks in advance guys


(p.s. go easy on me im a newbie here)
