If the check engine light is on have the vehicle scanned for any trouble codes. This will let you know what to look at. But I'm thinking a fuel delivery problem. Should have the fuel pressure checked. Possible bad fuel pump, fuel regulator or leaking fuel injectors.

Why on earth would you buy one of those pieces of junk. You will soon be very sorry you purchased it as they are one of the most troublesome vehicles on the road. Best of luck with it.
