ok heres the deal...i have a 1993 corrado slc vr6 with a 5sp tranny, everything else is stock...(that i love and dont know how i lived with out it) and i was driving home from school today and all of a sudden the whole car started to sputter. if i looked at the tach, the engine would be revving with out me even touching that gas. if i tried to drive, the car would go, stop, go, stop, really fast, to the way the engine was running. if i pressed on the gas, the car would go faster, but it would still sputter. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO...AND I NEED A GOOD WORKING CAR!!! HELP!!! Thanks!

Check your vacume lines first, let me know if they're ok.

It's 1/4" cloth covered hoses running around the engine compartment, some at the back of the engine, on the drivers side, there are a few running till and from the intake manny, and to the FRP and ECU.
Shouldn't be hard to locate them.

Checking the fuel lines and throttle would be my first thing to do.

Actually dont rule out the fuel pump mine did the same thing due to a bad conection to the fuel pump and with a 5 sp trans you tend to jerk when driving alot more = fuel hitting the pump and conections more violetly. its pretty easy to check there is a fuel pump access panel under the carpet in the trunk its the circle with all the hex bolt around it. so if those other suggestions dont work take a look at it.

Btw no new pump was needed just some new connectors and i was off.
