You have several sensors that can cause different problems . Are you getting a check engine light?

Are you sure that there isn't an air leak. If something is allowing air to enter after the air flow sensor your car could behave in this manner. Are you getting a check engine light ? A code set by the computer will lead you in the right direction.
