95 Saturn SL2 @ 35mph
A few days ago I was driving home from work. The speed is 30mph most of the way. I didn't notice anything wrong at that speed. On the last road the speed gets to 35mph. As I accelerated to 35 the car started to jerk just a little but the rpm stayed where it should be. When I got to 35mph the rpm fell to about 300 and just sputtered. Luckily I was right at my apartment. I parked and turned off the car, turned it back on and it was still sputtering but only for about 20 seconds. Then the rpm went back to normal and it idled fine. This happens every trip at about the same speed. Also when it acts up like this there is a funny smell coming from the exhaust. Not sure what it smells like. Any ideas?
