Adding coolant means little to the problem.time for a general tune up start there.sometimes 150 bucks makes your head ach go away

think you but could it be my Mass Air Flow Sensor that could be doing it

Do checking before throwing parts at it. Gets very expensive. Check fuel pressure at the rail, cost zero plus 20 bucks for a gauge if you do not have one. Then take out the multi-meter and do some checking. A MAF sensor may go for a hundred bucks or more.
