    I would have the catalytic converter inspected for a possible restriction. Also check for any vacuum leaks or an air leak somewhere.

    Crank shaft position senor failure on that model can do this as well but proper tests for vacuum leaks and looking at key sensor values on an oscilloscope may show what the true problem is.
