I would take it in and have the engine looked over, one cause could be a fuel filter or fuel pump. At least change out the fuel filter and have the fuel pump pressure checked.

I have one same year it's the ignition switch not the key switch it's on left side of steering wheel lower part easy fix 40.00 dollars
