1998 Geo Metro Front Wheel Drive Manual 60000 miles

Please help, my metro(3cyl. 1.0L) recently had trouble starting, after a few trys it does, but sounds "whinnyer" than before. Also on my way home today, I lost all power, (twice) and stalled to the side where after a few trys it started and went for a few miles. Has always been a reliable car, but now I'm stuck please help

Check the mass airflow sensor, and(airfilter/breather). Also, you may want to check fuel pressure. Are there any engine lights on?
