    It's most probably either a clogged fuel filter or a vacuum leak from a cracked or loose hose going into the intake manifold or around the base of the manifold itself. Replace your fuel filter. Check all the hoses for cracks and leaks. Spary starter fluid spray around the base of the IM to see if you get a surge in rpms which will locate the leak. If this does not solve the problem, you should go to your local auto parts store and have them hook up an OBDII scanner to the car and check for any fault codes. Most major auto part store chains like Auto Zone and NAPA will do it for free! This will tell you if any specific parts, sensors or modules are malfunctioning. It will save you hundreds of $$$ if you know what is wrong before replacing a lot of expensive parts.
