Again, a problem like this is very difficult to diagnose via remote control. You haven’t given me much to go on here, but my first suggestion would be to have the car scanned at a workshop and see what error codes materialise. From there, you can take a much more targeted approach to working out which of the hundreds of possible components is causing the problem. Don’t forget the basics, either, such as contaminated or old fuel in the tank. Modern fuel doesn’t like sitting around in a tank and can `go off’ over time.
