No acceleration, car doesn't start or stops running
When I press the gas sometimes the car doesn't respond. Also sometimes when I try to start it seems it's getting no gas and doesn't start or even worse when I'm driving and press the gas the car shuts off.
Re: no acceleration, car doesn't start or stops running
When did you last replace fuel filter? Check and replace it.
Check fuel pressure if you have the equipment.
Possible causes of your problem are fuel filter or possible fuel pump that is going out.
If you have a code scanner (they are relatively cheap now) pull the codes and see what you get.
Many shops will read the codes for free or cheaply.

could be spark plugs, dirty fuel filter, air filter, Mass Air Flow Sensor. bad spark plug wires. Dirty throttle body or injectors. I would start with the cheapest and work my way to the more expensive things if it doesn't improve.
Well for one, make sure you speed up slowly, dont HIT the accelerator. It may also be problems with your fuel filter. After you are stoped fuel stops running through the fuel pump/filter and then when you start going its starts to run through again and it cant keep up so it gets bubbles in it and doesnt move throught the filter easily hence the jerky accelerating. Good Luck
it can be couple of thing Try a fuel injector cleaner or new fuel injectors.it can be vacuum leak. Engines need a vacuum
to run especially at idle which is when your car dies. It could be a stuck
EGR. If the check engine light comes on it will store a code so take it to a
shop and pay them to read the codes. This may give you a starting point.
