Let's try some general maintenance things first check air filter clean throttle body replace fuel filter if have not done so in a while add Lucas Fuel Injector Cleaner to gas tank

i have tired that before with the lucas and it works for a little while then starts right back up with the same problem, we did a full oil change about 2 months ago

Ok this is what you need to do since you said the Lucas works for a little while add some more take vehicle out some where you can blow out the carbon like on a back road so you can hit the passing gear a few times. Careful no speeding tickets.

I will give that a try after work. I never really thought of that before.
