Emily, if the engine light is on,there is code,s in the computer showing the issue,s,but if no engine light,may be clogged fuel filter or bad fuel pump with low pressure these will not show on scan of computer,have the fuel filter changed,then have the fuel pressure checked,or may just need a tune up,HTH.

No engine light... i had the fuel pump replaced already. Its odd because it will only do it if i drive it at least 15 minutes shut it of and the try to start it again. But it does seem to start better if i push the gas. I have a video of it do it but im not sure how i can up load it here.
