i'm not a mechanic but i had this problem with my riv. my problem was the ring aroung the top of the fuel pump, which is located in the gas tank. the ring corroded and left a hole allowing air and debris to get in. there might not be enough pressure to peoperly drive the vehicle. if that's not it, there may be a cut or damaged fuel line.
