how many miles and what services have you had done?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
83,000 miles, other than oil changes none, we have only had it 1 year and it has been fine. i had the oil changed end of july and have had several small problems, windshield wiper problems and the change engine oil light comes on occasionally i checked oil it is down 1 qt but was not concerned.

Is there a check engine light or any other lights on?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
no, only occasional change engine oil.
Expert:  dadinger replied 7 years ago.
First you can start by doing a fuel pressure check as well as replacement of the fuel filter. What is very common on these is for the fuel filter to become clogged from sediment or bad gas.
