just a few thing i had with my brothers car when it was doing the same it took me 3months at looking at the car and then i clocked on what it was

1)have you changed the throttle body on the car
if not
take the air intake hose (the bit from air box to engin)off it and have a look when the car is running see if it is letting air in
if it has been changed it could be the wrong one
just a few things to look at be4 you change anything that costs to much
