    I had this problem with my vehicle. My computer was fried. Start with the basics, you should inspect the spark plugs for wear and check the coil(s). If you have coil packs then that is most likely not the problem. If it is not either of these problems and you have not altered the stock wiring harness in the ignition system then it could be your computer. good luck man. That's the best advice I got for you.
