I'd have to agree with dreww, with the fuel filter, and hows the gas mileage been ?

Agree about changing the fuel filter and if that doesn't work, get a fuel pressure gauge, hook it up to the Schrader valve and check pressure. Should be a good steady 58-60psi at idle and stay close to that even at WOT or when revving.

A bent pushrods will also cause it to fall flat on its' face...ask me how I know.
