Change the air filter. For even better performance, give it a complete tune-up, including new plugs and wires, pcv valve, air filter, and change the oil. Good luck!

Most likely issue is your accelerator position sensor. Recommed you remove it and test with an ohmmeter. I don't have the pinout, but there are only four pins.
