I have a '91 Geo Prizm with 5 speed 4 cylinder engine. Here lately the car has been let's say studdering usually in 1 or 2 gear but now it does it in 3 and sometimes 4. When the car has warmed
up, usually the studdering slows down and when im up to speed the ride is normal and smooth. Got any clues as to what could be the problem.

Don't know the mantainence history but I think checking the fuel pressure and maybe changing the fuel filter if it's been awhile.Also would check the air filter, cap,rotor,wires and spark plugs if it's been awhile.I think you are trying to describe a misfire or a bogging condition but I'm not sure.
