when you say buck... does it feel like a misfire? If so... how old are the plugs and plug wires?

Also, how old is the fuel filter? I experienced this on my old Tercel, it drove fine under cruise condition and light loads, but as soon as I put my foot in it it would buck like mad.

Also do you have and codes popping up? Most Autozones will pull OBDI codes for you especially on domestics.
