Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
What normally causes this problem is a failing mass air flow sensor, the mass air flow sensor is responsible for measuring the fuel/air mixture. The sensor should be ohm tested as a next step.
