Hi Steve and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, it would appear to be a fuel delivery/starvation issue. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • check/clean the fuel cap as it may have venting issues;
  • • check/verify consistency of vacuum to the shutoff valve;
  • • check/test fuel pump for possible heating, vapor lock or low output pressure.
