Almost 99% chance this is a vac. leak. Make sure to take ALL intake hoses out and
inspect. Many times the problems are on the underside where you won't be able to
see them by just looking over the intake system. Check all related components
eg. air cleaner, vac. lines, etc....sometimes, leaks can develop at the back of
intake manifold, or at the injectors. If the car is acting up like that, the leak is
probably pretty substantial, so you should be able to find it. After that, check the
fuel items...eg. fuel filter, injectors, system pressure, etc. Good luck.
