nissan frontier problem with fuel??

my friend has a 2001 nissan frontier , her husband passed a year ago , and it was his truck . when driving the truck the engine will just drop to idle speed . the tach showes a grand , let up on gas pedal and push again it will run regular for a bit , but soon dies down to a grand , no power untill the pedal is released then pushed again , there is no pattern to when this will happen, does anybody have any ideas ?? thanks , h

Probably a good idea to get it on a scanner, but it might be the throttle position sensor, aka TPS.

Check engine light ever come on?
