    This would usually be caused by spark plugs that needed replacement; so if the plugs have not been changed in the last 15,000 miles; I would replace them with either Champion # 3013 Platinum Power, or Bosch # 4305 Platinum +2. This Bosch plug comes pre gapped; but the Champion should have the gap checked and adjusted to .054".

    I would also recommend inspecting the air filter element; and replacing it if it doesn't pass light easily; along with cleaning the throttle body and the mass airflow sensor.

    If these items do not clear up the problem; I would replace the camshaft position sensor.

    check the pcv hose and idle air control valve. Replacing the plugs is a big job on the MPV, so I'd want to hold off on replacing them until everything else has been eliminated.

    Sounds like one of the coils is going out or it may be the pcv hose, these are two well know issues with the MPV of that year.
