I just finished swapping mine out for a new one yesterday & before I swapped it the car was having a hard trouble at starting, could hardly start in cold weather, idled funny, & I was getting worse gas mileage. If you'e experiencing this that could be it. Took me 30min to swap it out

^ everything he said.

Plus, you'll have what feels like hesitation. If you're a manual, in low gears with low revs the car will feel like it jumps a bit. Also, pull your plugs and see if they're white. You'll probably be running lean.
