check to see if your accelerator cable is binding or sticking under the pedal or under the hood.
have you changed the fuel filter in the last 100 000 km(60 000mi) or past two years? if you decide to try this run the car until you about enough fuel to make it to a reputable gas station after changing
check that you have a good stream of fuel at the fuel rail

Engine stalling and rough run
issue at low speeds
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
