Has it had a tune up lately? Check your plugs & wires. I fit is fuel starved it may could use a fuel filter. I would also check for vacuum leaks. The throttle body, IACV, MAF may need a cleaning. Only spray off MAF with CRC MAF cleaner & use CRC Throttle body cleaner to clean the IACV and throttle body, remove those two and replace gaskets.

Potato recent Tuna new fuel filter and check DM vacuum lines going into the throttle body today to check the filters on the injectors

Not sure where potato or tuna came from but yes it's at a recent tune-up and a new fuel filter and check it for vacuum leaks and check spark plug wires I'm going to check out the tbi today and the injectors and filters .thanks
