thinking it's something with the Fuel system Cause
it Chokes up and loses power Just putting way to
much in to this. Wondering if it's the fuel filter or
dirty gas??? Thank you

It could be a number of things but I would think it is most likely related to fuel pressure. This sounds like a clogged filter or bad fuel pump. start the car with the back seat open and the fuel service door open listen for the steady hum of the pump while the car is running if it falters its likely the pump has nearly worn out. Check your fan belt as well if the belt is old and loose when it slips it could be losing power due to it not properly spinning all the parts. The fuel pressure regulator could also be the cause. Quickest way to find if fuel pressure is a problem is to have a fuel pressure test done.
