Welcome to the forum

Sounds like a fuel pressure issue to me. Your symptoms are very similar to the fuel pump going out. Very common on that model year. They redesigned the fuel pump and fuel pump canister after the 01' model year. You can try replacing the fuel filter sometimes that helps. Others may have more suggestions just need to wait for them to chime in
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
