Garyq1970 ythose are called DRIVE-ABILITY ISSUES,
As far as the code P0174 goes 1st check for vacuum leaks, use a can of carb spray to do this test, if the engine RPM changes (increases) while spraying then there is a vacuum leak and this will cause the code, while u are at it clean the Mass Airflow Sensor, the spray cleaned is available at any good parts store it is made by CRC chemicals.
