Possible bad throttle position sensor.

Check your TPS throttle position sensor center wire and ground should be around 1 volt with fully closed throttle and as you move throttle it should steadily climb to 4.5-5volts at full open throttle. If showing anything other than this it is bad and will cause too rich or to lean issues causing engine to stall.
