Fuel pressure regulator or fuel filter is where I would start. It could be other things too like: fuel injectors, cam position sensors ect.

I changed my valve cover gasket and c02 sensors never had a problem since

Also look at the throttle position sensor or the throttle plate itself(butterfly). If its dirty clean it with carb cleaner.
