Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,

Hi .

Could be a number od issue that could cause this to happen , from a throttle position sensor to a MAF sensor .

The only realistic way to check for this issue is to have a scan tool hooked up to your diagnostic port.

This tool will check for malfunction codes and let you know what has failed ,this is way safer and cheaper than replacing part by just plain guessing ..

If you can get the use of a code reader and and post me the codes i could help you
with the cost of the repair .

Please get back to me with the reply button and not the poor or bad service so i can get back to you with further assistance with this issue.
