Have you had the recalls done on this car? If not that might be part of your problem.

*rolls eyes...* Or... it could be a plugged fuel filter or a fuel pump about to fail. Could also have a number of electronic causes. Before throwing parts at the problem and hoping it will go away I would suggest having a properly equipped mechanic scan the engine and see what it is saying.

Lol. I agree.

Could be a bad timing chain tensioner... easy to check.
