Check air filter and clean throttle body replace fuel filter if have not done so in a while add fuel injector cleaner to gas tank and use the middle grade or high test gas to help clean out the gum and carbon build up.

Changed filters and I use a gas additive from time to time I t stalls out when taken off I shut engine down and start it back up and it runs for awhile then it stall out again when taking off the same thing shut it off start it right back up and it runs fine for while like something is resetting


No check engine light ? Remove positive battery terminal for about 10 seconds and reinstall. Try resetting computer.


Tried that still doing it


Could be the fuel pump is shutting down or a collapsing rubber fuel line. Try this remove gas cap and try to run vehicle and see what happens. I am thinking cap not venting probably causing rubber gas line to collapse.
