My Mechanic and I both concur with Michael that the culprit is bad fuel. He told me to start fresh with a new filter, as I needed one in 5000 miles anyways and sold me a can of BG 44K, a professional use fuel system cleaner, $19.95!!!!!! A great deal if it works, insane if it is snake oil. However, this is perhaps the most reputable and honest mechanic in the area, so I would tend to trust his expertise. I am putting in the filter as soon as I receive it, bleeding the injector lines to clean some of it out initially, and then I will run the can through a tank and see what happens. Of course it started behaving better as soon as I took it to the mechanic, the only thing I had done is run it with STP and Fuel Injector Cleaner pretty hard for the week.

You might also make sure the primary catalysts are not blocked up. This can be a common occurrence on the 103 engine.
