    Check all your hoses. When my FPR hose came loose, I got the same thing.

    Possible causes...

    1- Exhaust leak- check for leaks at all connections and for cracks or holes
    2- Air intake leak- same as above on air intake, intercooler hoses, etc
    3- Low fuel pressure- are you due for a fuel filter? Is the pump good?
    4- Coolant temp sensor
    5- Manifold absolute pressure(MAP) sensor
    6- Intake air temp sensor

    If its any of the last 4, I'd recommend taking it to a shop for a proper diag... Unless you have the proper equipment to test the sensors and fuel pressure
