Have throttle body cleaned with throttle body cleaner spray and also have fuel filter changed if have not done so in a while. Add fuel injector cleaner to gas tank then take out on road and hit the passing gear a few times this wil help clean the fuel injectors and clear out the carbon build up. Careful no speeding tickets.
