i have a 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer (automatic),
when i am at full throttle and shifting into 3rd gear(40mph) the car has a hiccup. it kinda stutters and feels like an older carburetor car choking. but there is no pop sound of anything. no engine noise of any sorts that i can hear. and it only does this when i am at full throttle. every once in a blue moon it wont do it though. but 90% of the time it does. i have heard it could just be that i need new spark plugs. but ive also read it could be a tranny issue too. so im wondering if anyone has had this problem and how did you solve it. and/or does anyone have any suggestions of answers to what the problem could be. thanks alot for your help everyone!

Steps to follow:
1st Tune Up PEOPLE, simple spark plugs, cables, filters, oil changes.
2nd Transmission and gear oil, differential. change the automatic tranny filter
3dr pray to god that all gears are fine
