Hi, my 2012 Spark is lagging while accelerating. It isn’t a constant issue but will occur 2/3 times during a 10 minute drive, for example. I’ve inspected the engine and nothing seems broken/damaged. Check engine light came on, took to garage, they replaced spark plugs. Issue continuing. Has anyone seen this before/knows what’s likely to be the issue? Thanks👍🏽👍🏽

Did they advise what the error codes were generated when the Check Engine Light was lit?
Is it when you accelerate gently or when you accelerate rapidly? When was the fuel filter last changed?
Has the airfilter been changed recently?

The only code was for the spark plugs which they changed. There’s now no error codes. Mainly in 1st and 2nd when accelerating smoothly/gently. No idea mate when fuel filter was changed as only bought in October but air filter is clean and nearly new.

Spike, As you apparently have no Service History, member JMC pointer to the fuel filter is a sensible route to pursue.
