    Clogged injectors, engine has a broken motor mount and when she jumps on it the engine is shifting and crimping the fuel line How frequently does it bog out, and when it does happen what are the exact symptoms?

    If the car is losing power when she is reving up than it could be a problem in the tranny. Maybe the clutch is fried and not locking correctly... :unsure:
