I suspect a fuel pressure issue. Possible fuel regulator. Fuel pressure test would need to be done to determine what the problem is.

keep things simple replace fuel filter if it persists the follow the steps above^^^^^^^^

Might be a vacuum leak. Is the check engine light on? If yes, scan for the codes.
