    Is the Service Engine Soon/Check Engine Light on if so using a scan tool will narrow down your diagnostic search. I have replaced fuel injectors for a similar problem on the Dodge but if the light is on or not a professional grade scan tool allows testing of sensors and gives air flow into the engine misfire count fuel trim engine load figures ect.. all useful in diagnosing the root cause of the drivability issue.
