Could be many things. If it has a high milage, try checking, and if needed, changing or cleaning out the air filter, fuel filter, MAF, etc. Also, when was the last time the plugs and wires were changed or any other parts in the ignition system. If the plugs were changed, were the proper heat range plugs put in?
