Hi AOK,to be sure what was causing your problem,some testing would have to be performed. A scan of the engine computer to get fuel trims and sensor readings,and a fuel pressure test. If you want to take a inexpensive guess, I would start with a fuel filter replacement. If that doest't repair your problem the tests I mentioned will have to be done.Jerry

6 months ago I had the engine replaced and they replaced the fuel filter and the plugs and plug wires at that time.

In that case the tests I mentioned in my first post would be needed to determine the cause of the running problem.
