Hi there:

In most cases, the symptoms you’re describing are related to fuel delivery problems; with components such as the Mass Airflow Sensor, TPS (Throttle Position Sensor), or the throttle body itself being damaged, having faulty connections or simply being dirty and need to be cleaned. The only way to know for certain is to have a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, complete a Check Engine Light inspection so they can download any stored error codes that might be an indicator of a problem that hasn’t showed up yet on the dashboard.
