Something like this can be a bear to find. I would start with the fuel filt if it hasnt been changed in a while. Pull it off and try to blow thru it there should be very little resistance.

Check the fuel canister. This is in the back by the fuel tank. It grabs the overflow.
I just had to replace one on a 08. It will cause problems with fuel flow and it musts be changed.

How about electrical? Or Maybe there is a problem with the mapping (Maybe Timing is off a bit)? Have you checked any codes?
