    This sounds like a possible fuel supply or airflow meter issue, but first see if there are any trouble codes stored in the engine control module.

    check your fuel pressure it might be the fuel pump. If the pump is shot it will sometimes still pump gas but at the wrong pressure and when u push on the gas it will die.
