Hello and welcome to just answer. This sounds like a plugged up fuel filter. If the fuel filter is plugged up, then when the engine needs more fuel like when you step on the throttle the fuel supply is not adequate because the filter is clogged up. Have it replaced. I think that will take care of this.
