    Possible anti-theft problem. How long has it been doing this?

    Anti-theft system issues won't cause this.

    Check fuel pressure first. If it's steady and high enough, and there is no bleeding down, then proceed to check spark, air and exhaust flow. Something is missing from the equation. I think fuel.
