your automobile possibly used drive by wire, this means unlike proper automobiles of the past your automobile uses electricity to operate the air/gas inlet unit situated on top of the engine chances are its the linkage between the 2 components being gas pedal and air/gas inlet unit

This is caused by ,low fuel pressure or the catilac converter being stopped up,start by replacing fuel filter,if this does not fix the issue,have the fuel pressure checked could be the fuel pump,next would be the catilac converter,if it is bad it will glow and throw off a lot of heat.
