You are either losing power to the fuel injectors or the injectors are very dirty. If they are dirty you can add fuel injector cleaner to gas tank and use middle grade or high test gas to help clean out the gum and carbon build up. If injectors are losing power you will need a noid light that plugs into connector that goes to fuel injectors to check for power.
