Sounds like it may be starving for fuel.The fuel filter may be plugged or the fuel pump has quit working. Unhook the fuel line turn key to on & see if there is a steady stream of gas.


Also, when was the last time any ignition parts were changed (dist cap, rotor, plugs, wires, etc)? The car is 15 years old and may just need some "tune up" parts.
