Hello. This can be caused by quite a few different things. Most of the time it is caused by something like a dirty fuel filter, a failing air flow sensor, or possibly a bad catalytic converter. I usually scan the computer for codes and then monitor the sensors readings to see if anything looks off. If nothing is found then the fuel pressure needs to be checked and the converter should be checked for excessive back pressure.
