1996 Buick Regal acelleration problems

It has 60k miles. Had fuel filter replaced and fuel injectors cleaned about six months ago.

Recently started - when accelerating or going up at hill it will momentarily jerk.

Any ideas what might cause this?

1) Try a better grade of gas. IE Higher Octane instead of who has the lowest price. Check your owners manual for the recommended fuel octane rating. You may be suprised.
2) Get your catalytic convertor checked to and if it is bad and since the car has less than 100k on it they have to change it for free its a federal law that i learned about when i need mine changed but i was over about 1000 miles just my luck lol

  1. My 96 Regal was doing the same thing. Getting the transmission fluid replaced made it run smoother going up hills.
