Get an ECU to pinpoint your problem Also some quick tips Fuel Flow Sensor dirty Not all spark plugs are working properly- to check and verify turn your car on and pull one plug out and listen if it reacts, it should be the sound of it losing power and you will no but if the engine remains the same then you have a spark plug not giving a spark Also pull ONE out at a time and put it back in before checking the next one its supposed be procedure ONE AT A TIME because it will be more accurate Mis fire Has your car been going through regular oil changes

Go back to autozone and have them plug a code scanner into the car to get the code. They do this for free, post the code here.
