It could be a partially blocked air filter, fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator (if your vehicle has one) or low fuel pressure. Use a fuel line pressure gauge to see what the pressure is. You may need to look up the PROPER pressure for your vehicle, then compare it to the actual pressure. If it's low, check the fuel filter and/or fuel pump.
