Sounds like it needs a good tune up, plugs cap rotor wires air and fuel filters, then put in some SeaFoam in the fuel tank, then reset the ECM and drive it as you normally would, that way the computer will relearn the vehicle and the way you drive and adjust the engine controls accordingly. HTH

Mandojr, if you run it all the time with less than a 1/4 tank of fuel you are overheating the fuel pump, the pump uses the fuel as a coolant so of it is always running hot then it life is severely limited, so I would recommend replacing the fuel pump, relay and filter and then run it with more than 1/4 tank at all times.
