Check the codes first off.

I had what sounds exactly like this and it was caused by a misfire(cylinder 4).

Turned out to be a bad ignition coil. Swapped in a new one and its as good as new. Coil cost me about 30$ with free shipping from FCP Euro.

Read the codes, Im sure its misfire on cylinder. Replace all the coils - if one is going another one will break soon. Might as well do spark plugs while your there.
