Has the check engine light ever come on? Have you checked fuel pump pressure?

The engine ligh comes on once a while for 1 day only then turns off. The fuel pressure has not been checked what would the psi be on this model. If I pull over to the side and wait for a minute with the car on, then try to go the car will run about 5 miles an hour very slow.I have to turn it off and then back on to start running normal again for a couple miles.

If the light has been on, there is a trouble code stored in the computer that will help identify the problem. Take the car to a nationally recognized parts store and have them scan it. Most will do it for free. Let me know what you find.
