Hi have you tuned it up lately could be you just need a tune up your spark plugs could be really old that's where I'd start beyond that if you do a tune up and it's still running rough it could be your throttle position sensor it's in your throttle body not sure I can give you any more information other than do a tune up and go from there good luck!
