The problem is that when I sitting idle my shakes slightly. When I press the gas it feels like it does'nt want to pick up speed. It sputters and rattles while picking up speed. Once I get to the desired speed and keep it there it runs fine until I have to stop then it starts all over again.
Do you
have the same problem?

Lack of acceleration, chugging, hesitating, jerking, bogging, misfiring etc. Could be caused by one of the following below

Oxygen sensor.
Catalytic converter.
Fuel injectors dirty/sticking.
Mass airflow sensor/Airflow meter.
Throttle position sensor.
Crankshaft position sensor
Knock sensor
Manifold absolute pressure sensor.
EGR Valve
Fuel pressure regulator leaking or defective fuel pump.
False air leakage.
Fuel contamination.
Foul/defective spark plugs.
Open spark plug wires.
Ignition coil/Coil packs defective.
Incorrect ignition timing.
Cap and rotor.

Note:If it doesn't apply disregard it

When I asked the question I forgot to mention that the engine light was flashing. I went to have it checked at auto zone but they said that they coud'nt check it until the light stays on. Also prior to the car acting up I went to a cheap gas station before going to work 3 weeks ago and filled it up, as I got on the interstate that's when it started. I have filled it up twice since then and put gas treatment in the tank to try to solve the problem because I believed that was the problem but, since it's still happening I guess not. Thank you for the information rasmataz. Now I have to figure out how much is this going to cost me.

Go somewhere and get it scanned with or w/o the CEL, you'll probably end up having misfire code/s
