This happens often. To avoid the problem I gradually give it gas, but even then it doesn't solve the problem all the time.

    Answer #1 and possible leak between throttle body and mass air flow meter (NOT the meter). Check for break(s) in hose that would be opened when stepping on throttle , because of worn engine mounts maybe?

    Bet you are right, best i remember, when checking the air filter on this engine, the lube shops jack the cleaner top up about a foot to remove it breaking the hose!
