Instead of shooting in the dark, did you put diagnosis tool and see if any codes are showing up? if so what are they?

The throttle sensor will cause what you are telling me. http://repairpal.com/throttle-position-sensor-may-fail-473 if that the code that came up, let go ahead and change it. I would also clean the throttle body as well.

its an easy swap, and its located near the throttle and should take 20 mins at the most. lets see what happens.

You may also want to check the crankcase sensor even though you are not getting that code and will cause the car not to start. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZIIJo6OHNM
