Most common cause of this is crank position sensor. however there are several equally good reasons as well. Have your codes checked with a scan tool, check your battery voatage (should be 12v or better) and listen for fuel pump running in tank with key on.
There are individual component tests you can make with a decent volt/ohm meter. Test for cps is that between b&c terminals there should be no connection (continuity) same reading as you get with meter turned on and test leads not touching anything. You can find instructions in most manuals including vehicle -specific ones such as haynes.
This is not a solution. unless someone gets lucky and guesses correctly, only proper testing will get you an accurate diagnosis!

Before yoy go crazy looking for problems you can't see, buy a spray can of carb cleaner ($3.50) and clean the sludge under the flap of your throatle body. Dirt gets in through the air filter and accumulates where you can't see it without putting the flap in the vertical position. Use a rag and your finger to wipe it clean after you spray it liberaly.
What happens is that you engine needs a minimum amount of air at low speed, when the flap is in the horizontal position, and the sludge blocks it.
