Sounds like a mixture control issue. Not enough fuel being injected to make power. Does it also cut out if you rev in neutral/park?

Hello, I have a daewoo lanos 2000 model car.I read a conversation between fixitmr and craigie 29. It sounds very similar to my problem with my car. It has been to 2 mechanics now with no luck. My car will start after a while if you pump the accelerator, then it will cough and splutter until it stalls. This will continue for 5 minutes or more while I keep reving the car to keep it running and then eventually it all of a sudden run smoothly again as if nothing is wrong. Once driving normally for a good few km with no problems then it has started its coughing and spluttering again instantly, I pull over and it stalls again. Is there a common problem/fault with these cars like this, maybe electrical?All the obvious things have been looked at twice or replaced i.E spark plugs, fuel, oil, fuel filter, fuel pump. Please help
