This could be a fuel-related issue, an exhaust issue, a fuel pressure, or sensor related issue. Is the check engine light staying on when the engine is running?
If the engine light is staying on or flashing, you need to have the computer scanned for codes. That will help point us in the right direction.
If there is no check engine lamp, I have a few questions. First, is this the original engine with 400K on it? Have you noticed any gray or black smoke from the exhaust? Are there any odd sounds from the exhaust system?
