Go to Auto Zone or someplace like that and have them plug into your diagnostic connector and give you a code. I am guessing that you have a light on your dash that is glowing saying "Service Engine Soon". Parts stores will do that as a free service. Most anything that goes wrong with an engine is fuel or air related.
