Check your fuel pressure, also does the exhaust look black and smell? Do you have a Check Engine or Service Engine Soon Light on?

yes the check engine light is on but has been on way before this problem began. how to check the fuel pressure?
I found out that mine was a
fuel Pressure regulator take it a Auto Zone store and have them do a test for you it is a little hand held machine they connected under the steering wheel and then it gives the codes and they will tell what is wrong with car
