01 Focus Wagon bogs down

I have a 01 Focus with 121k miles. When I go to give it a bit of gas to pull out somewhere it bogs down like its starving for fuel or something. Once it gets going it is fine. If I ease on the gas and accelerate normal I have no problems. Also it sometimes dies but this rarely happens. Maybe 3 times in the last year. Its been doing this for a few thousand miles.

Any suggestions?

Moved to "General Technical Chat". Sounds as if your fuel filter may be the culprit here.

sorry about that, thanks for the move. Id say its never been changed. I got it around 84k miles and it now has 121k. I may do that soon since its a cheap part.

It could be the fuel filter or the catalytic converter. Usually the cat will keep it from running very well at any engine speed, so I'd assume the filter first. Fuel filters should be replaced every 20-30k miles. I've been changing mine regularly, and I'm at 145k on the factory fuel pump. I hope to make 160+ with the factory pump.
