First thing is check for CODES. There are so many things that might cause that other than a basic tune-up if not previously done. EG Plugs (copper and not platinum types), good gas, air filter, throttle body cleaning. Although the oil has no effect on this but if regular oil changes have not be done it may aggravate the condition of the engine and/or be sludged up now.
If there aren't any codes and the tune-up is done. Checking the fuel pressure may be the next step. If the pressure is dropping below spec's the engine will not perform properly under various circumstances. Pulling the tank could be a challenge though as I was told when the dealer replace mine under warranty. This are not built for easy servicing.
