Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! There are quite a few things that could be causing your problem ranging from lack of fuel pressure, sensor issues, or even a restricted catalytic converter. The first thing that should be done is check for fault codes. Most driveability issues will set a fault code and that will give a starting point for diagnosis. If no fault codes are set then I would turn attention to the fuel supply system. It isn't uncommon to have enough fuel pressure to maintain idle but not allow the engine to run under load.
