Hi there, Could be a clogged fuel filter. I think the book states to change on average at every 60,000 miles but you might try that. Also might try some fuel injector cleaner. Auto zone sells the fuel filter for $24.00. I am not sure if the fuel filter is pressureized so dont remove without checking first. Unless you like the cologne of fuel all over you. Good Luck.
