Do you have a check engine light and when was the last tune-up?

Check fuel pressure/throttle position/MAF/MAP sensors

Also. Sorry. Lol. The last tune up was around a year ago. My grandmother let the car sit for over 10 years. Never started it.. Just let it sit. She had a friend of hers tow the car and he fixed most of the problems himself. Then she sold it to me. I havnt had any problems until now. I have had the car since last year 2007 and never had a any problems with it. Also, My husband put fuel injection cleaner in the car. Could that have maybe made the fuel filter in the tank really clog up and cause problems?

The only way to tell is do a fuel pressure test. But still I insist you have the other items checked I've mentioned earlier

Thank you rasmataz, I will get everything checked and see what we can find out. I just don't have the finances to take it to a mechanic. But I will check everything and respond with what we found out. Thank you again for helping us. I truly appreciate it all!
