Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that can cause the engine to run poorly. It may be a valvetrain related issue, it could be a fuel injector, an ignition issue, it's possible that you could have a fuel quality concern or even an exhaust restriction.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a scan tool to see what fault codes are setting and testing can be done from there. Do you know what codes are setting?
