Question about Cars & Trucks
Have you tried cleaning the MAF sensor. This sensor is by the air filter box. The mass air flow sensor has to be cleaned with a special spray that you can get at any auto parts store. Do not, I repeat do not use carb cleaner this will ruin it. It is basically a thin filament housed in a grid where the air flow goes through and if it gets coated by dust, oil, or burning to rich black soot this will throw the signal off just enough at the computer.

Just trowing some suggestions out there, but, I would check the idle air control valve (solenoid) or the throttle position sensor. If they check out then my last guess would be the map sensor or the vaccuum to the map sensor. Hope I was able to help. Best wishes.

Sounds like the catalytic converter or muffler are clogged. There isn't much exhaust at idle, but when you accelerate your exhaust volume increases, thus if your catalytic converter or muffler are clogged the restrict the exhaust escaping out thus causing an excess of back pressure which won't allow the engine to breathe normally.
