I have a 97 GL, and just today after I start my car, it acts like it wants to die. The RPMs go up and down. I never let it die, because when I put it into gear it acts fine. I ran my last tank of gas until the gas light came on, then I filled er up with Premium. (The first time I have done this). It seems to want to do this every time I start it now. I changed the rear fuel filter, but not the front one. And I recently had the Fuel Injectors cleaned at a stealership. I don't know what could be causing this, and I was hoping you guys can help me..

It could be our very admissable trannies goin bad. Maybe a vaccuum leak too. Just thoughts. I have 2 fuel filters on my 97. I also have 2 seperate fuel lines, so I'm guessing a filter for each line. I believe if you remove the fenderwell piece on the front passenger's side, you'll be able to see the second fuel filter right behind the beginning of the "firewall." That is, if you have one.
