Best Answer

It could be the fuel pump is unable to create adequate fuel pressure. It could also be the throttle position sensor, throttle body injector, fuel filter and any of a number other problems. Check for a computer code. If you don't see one, it might just be fuel related, since computers don't usually check for that.
