go to a parts store and have the codes read(most of them will do it for next to nothing. There is also more than likely some maintenance needed. get back to me when you have the codes and we can diagnose this together.
Just because there is a code does not necessarily mean that part is bad, but an area to test to find the actual problem.

Hi, when a major sensor fails, the engine computer reverts to default settings that the engine will run on but only well enough to get you to a service station. This is often called "limp home mode." In every case I've heard of, the malfunction indicator will light and the computer will store a code indicating the missing sensor data. An OBD 2 scanner is needed to extract the code. If you can get the code and send it to us, we can advise you on appropriate repairs. Most auto parts chains offer a free OBD 2 scan service. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

You need to scan for engine trouble codes. Most parts stores will do this for free, and tell you what they mean and make recommendations on what to do. The 'limp mode' kicks in to prevent damage to the vehicle when the computer gets data that something is wrong.. When you shut it off, it's temporarily reset, but then the cars computer is signaling there is still a problem, and it goes back into limp mode. If you have any questions after getting the codes 'read' , post questions and code #;s here for help. Good luck.

Sounds to me like the mass airflow meter, cutting in and out. When faulty it can completely shut a car off, and also ingauge limp mode. I hope this helps. Let me know how you get on.
