My car juddered yesterday when I accelerated and when idle. When I accelerate it's sluggish to respond and sounds like a plane taking off. Today the engine light flashed/blinked when I went up a hill. Is it spark plugs or is it possible that someone put sugar in my fuel tank?

Hi, please send a written answer rather than a phone call, thanks

Dear customer, if you tell me that you feel like an airplane, I imagine it is because you feel like a hiss, the hisses are usually vacuum leaks from the intake, but I am worried that you tell me that someone may have put sugar in the fuel tank because this is a bad thing, if you think that someone could have done this I recommend that you do not start the engine again and that you go to the nearest workshop first to make a diagnosis and find out the green code that is activating the engine light and second to Clean the fuel tank as soon as possible.
