What's the mileage?

Any history in the car like big repairs or accidents?

Any engine mods?

You can try to seafoam it, maybe fuel pump is bad....or even MAF sensor. Any aftermarket intakes? You said you bitch the car a month ago maybe seller erased any CEL lights?

Had a similar problem only it was a hard start. EGR was clogged as well as the cat but I cheated and had my metal shop next door make me a small plate that I stuck between the intake manifold and the pipe. Still gets a code every now and then but its rare.
