Check for a neutral switch or a bad throttle position sensor

i had the mass air flow sensor replaced in mine when it did that, but it kept doing it so i brought it back and they said they probably had a bad part, replaced it again and haven't had any problems since then.

Put a few table spoons of running alcohol in your gas tank.it might be water in the fuel and the alcohol will get rid of the water.

this happened to me on my 89 chevy nova. (loved that car!0 but mine wsa the alternator if i remember right. problems like this are hard to determine and usually cost a bundle to find and fix. sorry it took you a wad of cash but glad you have your ride back.
