That kinda sounds like water in the fuel, do you use top tier fuels? If not I recommend putting in a can of gas dryer and see if that helps and then switch to top tier fuels, all I run is Chevron or Texaco fuels in my rigs and have never had a water problem or any injector troubles. If you don't like the added cost of top tier fuel then every other fill up add a can of Techron in the fuel tank, this will help clean up your fuel system and injectors. Actual experance with this stuff.

How many miles do you have on your vehicle. Could just need a throttle body cleaning, but the 2.4 and 3.6 L. Have timing chain problems. 3.6 is worse because of the tone ring on crankshaft will move out of place
