Are there any type of warning lights coming on?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Hi Mike thanks for getting back to me , there are no warning lights coming on .
Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 3 years ago.
The most common reason for this to happen on these vehicles is a intake manifold gasket leak, what I would suggest as a first step is to have the intake manifold gasket checked for leaks.
