It can be any number of issues, ignition, fuel, a sensor,etc. Who did you buy it from? If it was from a garage or dealer, you can maybe take it back to them to correct the issue. If it was a private party sale and you purchased as-is, it's on your to get it looked at by a mechanic and fixed. Sorry I couldn't help further.
