I have noticed for a little while that when my car is at about 3,000 rpm, and i push the pedal to the floor, it will accelerate and then the rpm's go down a little bit, then back up. Also the engine light has been turning on occasionally and then turning back off sometimes a day later, or just sometimes a few hours later. I took it to get worked on and they ran a test on it and it brought up a code for something, but they couldnt figure out what the code was for. Has anyone had this same problem? What should i do about this?

Go to autozone and rent an ob2 scanner and post/research the code. Could be a lot of things; most common is camshaft sensors or coils.

weird, this happens on my step and they say its normal since the car is crusing in 5th and you just need to stomp the pedal more so it can kick down a gear... Since yours is a stick shift I dont know what to think
