You should check the condition of your fuel pump relay, ignition switch and spark plugs.

Probable bad distributor. Read fault codes before replacing anything. You will need a code reader.

Is your check engine light on? My initial impression would be a bad fuel pump which is not supplying continous pressure, it can a blockage in the system, a busted fuel pump.

Of course a shop will be able to verify this, or if you have a friend who knows a thing or 2 about fuel systems, have him run a fuel pressure test
