I drove myself nuts with a similar problem. Thinking the engine was flooding or not getting enough gas.
Check your battery connections. I have side screw connections and the negative was rusted and also broke down the threads. You could wiggle the screw.
I replaced the bolt and the problem went away.
If one of the connectors is not bad, don't kill yourself trying to replace the battery wires.
Probably not that simple but at least check it out. Mine is a 1999 and has one of those high end duralast batteries
