First, I would pull the fuel filter cover and take a look. if the filter material is black, replace it. Second, scan or have the 'puter scanned. Determine if any codes have been tossed. Third, check for loose connections under the valve cover. seems to be fairly common. Fourth....let us know about 1 through 3.
