Mig Welding HELP!

My welds look like dog ****, literally! I haven't been welding very long so here goes! My Miller Mig has all the settings for me (no brainer, ye right) I am welding 20gage sheet metal panels and I set as required but I get alot of spuddering and my welds look like u no what? I have tried slower speed, faster speed, hotter, colder gun closer , farther away, seems like there's something I'm missing! Seems like 6 months ago I was o.k., NOT NOW! Need some advice, thanks again, Dana, Everything is clean and my ground seems to be fine!

I changed the thread title to help with the search function.

What gas are you using with your mig? Hope your not using flux core wire.

Well first off, read the following a few times then go on out to the garage tomorrow morning and see how you do.
