HI,
I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question
Possible causes include a weak fuel pump, almost completely clogged fuel filter, leaking fuel pressure regulator, vacuum or intake leak, sticking throttle body throat plate or throat plate actuator, or secondary ignition failure.
