Its very possible that it could be missfiring, or running rich. Do you have the check engine light on?
I recommend getting the OBD system scanned for codes. If their is an issue such as a misfire a code would be stored in the computer. Most auto parts stores will do this for free. Once you know the codes (if any) it will be much easier to diagnose the problem.
