Resolved Question:

HelloCustomer this is typically due to a dirty mass air flow sensor. It is a common failure on this vehicle. Remove the air intake tube from the engine and spray out the throttle body with throttle body cleaner.

Is this easy to do ?? Could I do it. I'm not a mechanic but is it worth trying before taking to mechanic?

Yes it is easy to do. The throttle body is shown below. Remove the air intake tube and spray it clean and wipe it with a lint free cloth.
