Car hiccups when accelerating. Sign In

2002
Toyota
Tacoma pre runner
3.4 liter v-6
103,000

My Toyota Tacoma check engine light has been on for years. i took it to a shop years ago and was told that it was a minor problem and did not need fixing. recently my truck has begun to hiccup when i step on the gas. I don't know what the problem is but it has been getting progressively worse. I did however notice that something was leaking from my truck a few days prior. i thought nothing of it and let it be. Someone told me i could need new spark plugs but i don't know how to tell. Would really appreciate some help, and i apologize for the lenthy post and inexperience describing the problem.

That's the answer you get when the shop has no clue how to fix it and doesn't want to admit it. You need to take it to a different shop.
