Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
There are quite a few things that could be causing your problem. You may have a throttle position or MAP sensor issue, the EGR valve may be opening when it shouldn't, you could have a cam or crank sensor issue, or possibly the 5v reference circuit could be shorting and affecting the signal of multiple sensors.
The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to see what fault codes have set and turned the engine light on. Do you know what codes are setting?
