Check for vacume leaks

I had a similar thing happen on my Caddy. It turns out that the temp sensor was inoperable and telling the computer that the outside temp was 47below zero and was choking the car. There are other items like throttle control switch or Mas Air Flow sensors that may cause this problem. I would take it to a trusted mechanic and have it checked out

my temp display is pretty spot on tho
