A good jerk before work 🤣
Nothing wrong with that 🤷‍♂️

But to help you with the car.

Could be dirty injectors, faulty injectors, clogged fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator or fuel pump, weak battery with faulty alternator. Loose wiring or damaged wiring to coils even faulty mosfet in the ecu. Airflow meter etc.

Best way to eliminate allot of things is to get it on a diagnostic machine and scan it.
As I lay rubber down the street.
I pray for traction I can keep, but if I spin
and begin to slide, please dear God protect my ride.
