You need to check the EFI system for leaks. Start at the pump and go forward. Also the timing may be off. When was the last time it was given a good full service? That will set you back maybe $300, but far cheaper than if you need to call the big red trucks to put out a car fire. Your injectors also need to be looked at. Have the cooling system gone through. Your car is old, and needs attention. They are just like wives. Need money and tender care.
