When was the last tune up?

probably six months ago i had the sparks changed and the wires changed

You may need to have the MAF sensor replaced. That is what my car was doing. It is super easy to replace. I watched a youtube video and did it myself. I also found the part on ebay for $25. The dealer wanted $980 to fix it. Good luck!
