Have the computer scannned for OBD2 code/s and if any present post them -we start here-possibilities here could be TPS and MAF sensors

Ck the throttle cable at the petal and to the throttle body under the hood.

I would be looking at a faulty throttle position sensor I would also do the scan first to check for any unresolved fault codes, remembering that not all codes will set a check light.
