Sounds like could be bad gas. If it's dohc it requires premium high octane fuel to run properly. Old gas gives these cars fits. I would empty out all the gas, add new high quality fuel, loosen fuel line at fuel rail place catch pan under line and use fuel pump jumper behind the battery to energize the fuel pump and allow to pump till new gas comes out, re attach fuel line, replace the fuel filter, remove clean and or replace spark plugs, also check air filter because small rodents tend to nest there. This should get you back running fairly cheaply.
