Do a compression test. How long since tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? If you check codes yourself, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader. You may need to clean throttle-body and passages? Vacuum leak, somewhere? Any electrical part, if problem on the wiring circuit, replacing the part won't fix it.
