Odds are a fuel system problem. Probably dirty fuel injector(s). Try using fuel injector cleaner in the next few fuel fill ups. May clear problem up and not expensive.

The Battery? No, not typically the battery. That means that the alternator is not charging the battery and IF the engine is running, it's getting all of it's electrical energy from the battery. It means that once the battery charge is depleted, the engine won't run again until you recharge the battery.

Interesting question..glad you ask......The only ground on the engine is the negative cable is attached to the negative post on the battery, then the battery tray, then it is bolted to the block. The connection on the batt. tray sometimes corrodes and is not the best ground. That can be solved by adding your own ground...and then, not to worry.
