    I was driving my car and it starting "puckering out" - there was a
    half a tank of gas and I just added some oil when the car starting
    acting up I knew it wasnt that batter cuz the dash lights were well
    lit. I am about to change that spark plugs could there be something
    else wrong with it?

    You could wait until Psychic Wednesday, or you could tell us some
    details....... You choose.

  3. I suppose you really mean "spluttering" as "puckering out" sounds vaguely

    Could be any number of things from
    - fuel stavation
    - old plug wires, dirty spark plugs
    - timing is off.
    - dirty air filter

    Probably the best idea would be to have the car tuned up at a garage.
