The 2 things i would do first is have someone check for vacuum leaks with a smoke machine. And also have the MAP sensor cleaned. Reset the engine light and test drive it. Sometime a collapsed vacuum hose will not show up with a smoke machine because the smoke pushes pressure in the hose. Have someone check all hose with a good bright flash or drop light.
