    I would check mass air flow sensor, If you or anyone else has removed the wiring clip to it, you need to recheck the connection. The otter pin in the harnnes clip likes to kick sideways and not make connection when put back on, and yes the darn thing will connect back in without forcing, I prommiss. I would have diagnostics tested, but this is where i would start. My good freind had this problem with the clip, but only after replacing mass air sensor. The original was bad and givivg your symptons. Let me know what ya find and good luck!
