ugh nah that wasnt it.....somebody said it culd be the fuel sytem but that seems extreme....the engine bogs and the car barely moves untill the car warms up and/or it gets going for a while....if i press on the gas and floor it, it occasionally lurches forward while the car makes a few small backfires...its getting bad...i have no idea what it could be!!! please help

when I had my 92 it did that for while, then it started to overheat...I took it to a mechanic and he did the fuel filter and the thermostat
everything was good after that
