It could be an exhaust restriction. Do you have a vacuum/pressure guage? If so you can check this at the DPFE sensor hoses. This will be either a black or a silver sensor at the back of the motor with a 3 wire connector and two rubber hoses hooked to the bottom of it these rubber hoses then hook to metal lines that go down to the exhaust. Unhook one of these hoses at the sensor then hook up the vacuum/pressure guage. It should read less than 1 psi at idle and 3 to 4 psi at wide open throttle. Any thing more is an exhaust restriction.

Hi, i recommend changing the fuel filter and pump. these devices are dirty or clogged with debris. I also would recommend adding a fuel tank and injectors cleaner to the tank once you have replaced the pump and filter. this will scrub the fuel lines and injectors as well. this will increase the fuel economy of the car and it will clean the fuel system thoroughly. you should notice an improvement after you apply these changes to the cars fuel system.
Make sure the wires and plugs are in good condition. if the wires are old or fouled in any way, replace them along with a new set of spark plugs. change the air filter also.
please rate and have a great day:)
