Sounds like it could be an EGR problem. Or, it may be that you are running too rich and have bad O2 sensors. Take some where to have your codes read.

Had the same problem last week. Bought the new sensor hoping that was all it was. Took the sensor off and the vane on top was bent. Took it to the garage the next day. $140 for the synchronizer and $75 to install. Tried reading up on replacing the synchronizer but did not feel secure as chilton and haynes both explaned it different.
