You may be looking at dirty injectors. I would run a good quality (something like Wynns or Redline) fuel system cleaner through, following the directions on the bottle twice. Which usually means adding the bottle to a full tank of fuel, and then adding another bottle after a second fill. Check for improvement, this will cost under $30, vs a trip to a mechanic. A friend of mine had a 2.2l in a sunfire that did something very similar and a good cleaning cleared it up completely. Unfortunately, he spent $300 at a mechanic to find out.

Check for vacuum leaks. Spray some carb cleaner or WD40 around the intake manifold, trottle body and any vacuum lines. Check for loose connections on engine wiring harness (Maybe you disconnected a sensor, and forgot to re-attach it?).

If you can have the fuel pressure checked and compared to factory specs.There may be a leak in the line or where the fuel line connects to the filter.Your going to have to follow the fuel line visually from the fuel rail/injectors to the tank and check for dripping or moisture.I beleive it may be either that or the fuel pressure regulator.

Bad injectors causing the vehicle to run poorly can cause other damages to sensors etc. Buy a code reader and check the codes.
