Engine sometimes runs rough when slowly accelerating, especially going up a slight incline; sometimes will start running rough while traveling along the road and usually within a minute or two will have very little power and stall. When this happens it will run very rough for a few seconds when trying to restart. After it cools down, it will start again and run fine for awhile.

    Sounds like your engine is starving for fuel, Replace your inline fuel filter at the rear of the vehicle just in front of the rear wheel. You also have a filter in the fuel tank. If either filter or both is clogged, the symptoms you described are applicable.
