Will it idle ok? When it warms up, does it run ok? Sounds like a couplf likely things.
The fuel pumpcould be getting wea and not supplying enough pressure (40 psi) to the fuel injectors. Pump is in tank. About a $200 repair.
The fuel misture could be too lean due to a thin coating of varnish on the MAF sensor (mass air flow). It is on the black air cleaner tube held in with 2 anti tamper screws. Remove it and cean the wires with carb cleaner and a tooth brush very gently so you don't damage the delicate wires. I think you can get access by removing the air cleaner intake hose it is mounte on. About 3 inches x 4 inches. Also, clean the honeycomb air diffuser inside the air cleaner tube.
Other possibilities are dirty injectors, or other bad sensors. Need more info on how this started happening, how does it run warm, and if the comuter has fault codes. Your local auto parts store might run the computer test with their scan tool for free. Ask them.
Do not buy a knock sensor since they are never bad but the test sometimes says it is.
good luck. let us know what happens.
