Hi, when you start the car does it idle ok before driving? It could be your throttle position sensor that could be one thing I'm not sure it's hard to know what's wrong unless I had more information like knowing how many miles are on the car & has it been tuned up lately has anybody worked on it lately? All I can think of is a throttle position sensor cause I had to replace mine and it acted funny with the idle it might be trying to screw things up as far as driving the vehicle I'm not sure could be the spark plugs too hard to tell hope this helps?
