Hello all, A little history on the car. I've got a '97 355 with 2800 miles on it. I've owned for 5 months and have put 1400 of those miles on it myself. I bought it with the 30k service already done to it. Things have been great until a few weeks ago. Can anyone identify this problem? I fire up the engine and let it sit 5 or 10 minutes to get up to temperature. Here and there I'll hear one , two, or maybe every now and then a small series of backfires for lack of a better word, without the backfire noise. It's muffled , almost like the engine is skipping a beat or something. When I get going and lay hard into it , things are good, then the skipping/muffled noise can really pick up a bit at traffic lights after the car has been running a while. From there, when I take the clutch off and go into 1st gear, often times it's almost like it's gargling, lacking power, and then all of the sudden it's gone and the engine comes roaring back. Thoughts? For the life of me, I can't figure it out.
