Could be a gummed up fuel injector. Might want to try a can of fuel injector cleaner. Doesn't cost much; can't hurt. Might help.

You should retrieve any engine codes. Try the "key dance": Turn key "On", Off", "On", "Off", "On". (Without starting the car). Read codes in odometer space.

Or take it to an auto parts store like AutoZone or PepBoys and ask them to read any codes.

A heavy miss in the engine will trigger a code even if the CEL is not triggered.

Might be a borderline spark plug or spark coil.
