I havent been able to drive my car in 2 weeks except once bc of my shatterd hand in a car accident, and then yesterday i decided to take it out for a spin everything was going as normal untill i hit 3rd gear at 3500 rpm it started to bog and sound like a misfire, and it shook like crazy, and sounded terrible. the weird thing is if i shut it off and then just kept it in neutral and reved, it seemed normal, only seems like this is happenng when the motor is under load, but once i go to move move it started in first gear and i just shut it down not wanting to cause any more damage i have a 2.8 if that helps

water in the gas tank, my guess is that it sat too long, and condensation built up at the top of th tank, when the gas sloshed around, it collected the condensation and got ran thru the engine
