Dump the ECU codes and see what it is having issues with. Doesn't sound good.

I am not 100%. However my first instinct is knock sensor.....


However after thinking about, the CEL would be on conttantly if that were bad. And it wouldn't come on when it knocks.


Sounds like some sort o ffuel cut.

I would suggest disconnecting the map sensor (the vacuum line, not the electrical harness) And see if that solves your problem.
