Need more information - how many miles are on the vehicle? How much time and/or how many miles since the spark plugs, and the air / fuel filters were changed?

Without further details - and diagnostics / testing results - all possibilities are merely guesses at this point.

Corroded battery terminal / wiring connections, worn/faulty alternator, worn / faulty drive belt, engine vacuum leak, engine air intake leak, clogged air filter, clogged fuel filter, worn spark plugs, faulty fuel pressure regulator, poor qualty fuel - to list only a few.

Need to test and measure the fuel pressure at these two locations; at the fuel pump outlet, and also at the engine.
