sounds like either you have a bad fuel pump that can't really build any pressure,a cloged fuel filter, or a coil pack for the ignition is bad. Have some one put a fuel pressure gauge on the injector real to make sure you getting enough fuel pressure

The check engine tells me there is a bad code . possible the cam posistion sensor or the mass air flow sensor. Both would do this to the engine. Best to put a scan tool on it and see what the code says.
