I'd suggest having the vehicle checked for correct fuel pressure. The filter is located in the tank and on the pump. Another possibility is that you're having an issue with Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF). It would need to be tested with a scanner and data streamed to a computer to see if it is reading correctly.
