Sounds like you may need your fuel filter replaced. When it clogs up you won't get proper fuel flow to the engine. Could also be dirty air filter. Remove the filter and see if the prob lem goes away. If it does it's the air filter. No matter what you need to replace the fuel filter periodically. Good luck

Allow someone to sit inside while it idles in Park while you watch the motor. Then have them hit the accelerator peddle while you watch the engine. If the engine rises then sets back down, you probably have a motor mount failure.
