Change fuel filter, could be plugged with dirt. Check fuel pressure on fuel line, could be the pump.

Well it wasnt the pump or filter, now its not wanting to accelerate when hitting the gas or not wanting to start at all sometimes. It will run fine for a little bit than starts stalling out again everytime i let go of the gas.

try taking off the gas cap, could be the cap is shot and causing a vacuum in the tank. You might be on the right track about theentire fuel delivery system. If you want to google the car and see if any one has had a problem simular
