2002 Mazda Protege Question: Car sputters and cuts off

The car sputters and cuts off when I am backing up,or stopping and starting. I can press the accelerator and the car doesn't move for a few seconds then catches. I just had the oxygen & air flow sensor,air hose replaced for 900.00 and the problem persist. Any ideas? -
Answer 1
Check for an intake air leak such as loose clamps or a split intake air duct. Also could have a faulty airflow sensor, these cars had airflow sensor problems. here's a directory link for you and and estimator. http://repairpal.com/directory?address=27910&car_brand_names=Mazda http://repairpal.com/estimator?car_type_id=3560 -
