I was just up your way, albeit in Staten Island over the weekend. If your engine is warmed and running properly, and you are still on the original clutch, it may be time for a new clutch. Just make sure your lower motor mounts are okay and your fuel and iginition systems are working properly. When was the last time you cleaned your throttle body/plate? I use Berryman's B-12 Carb and Choke cleaner and the Berryman's B-12 Chemtool or Gas treatment in my fuel tank. This time of the year, it is easy to get condensation in your gas tank, or a tank of bad gas from a station that pumps a lot of gas, and you fill up when their tanks are low.
