only when the car is moving...it starts to kick, then it will just be like im not pressing the gass at all, then starts to kick again.
but no loss of power that ive noticed when its not kicking

Few more questions.

year/make/model?
engine/transmission? (Auto or manual is fine. Don't need to get technical like 4t60e etc etc.)
mileage?

That would help us aid you a little better rather than throwing wild guesses out there.
