First best to check fuel pressure and also could be dirty fuel injectors add fuel injector cleaner to gas tank and use middle or high test gas that is if you use the low grade gas all the time.


Also may want to take vehicle out on road and hit the passing gear a few times this will help clean out injectors and gum and carbon build up.
