You need a short test on that, could be a few faults, where in the world are you?

actually that could be the air mass sensor, i have known these symptoms before.

as colin, aka sam said, you really need a specialist with the correct equipment to diagnose correctly.

if i am right about the air mass sensor expect a bill in the low hundreds for repair of the msm ecu (has sensor built in), or over a thousand for a new part.
