WTF is happening?

So here in the land of fridged cold my car decided to stop working at 65mph cruise locked in for like 10-15min already. It didn't stop running but lurched and threw on the wrench light and decided it wanted to just not accelerate anymore. So I turned it off and turned it back on. The car kept rolling like nothing happened, except, when I threw the clutch it would drop down to about 500 RPM like it was about to kill but would bounce right up to around 1k like normal. I'm thinking it's the single digit temp and my SRI. Any other guesses as to what would cause this?

Sounds like a circuit in the mass airflow sensor is bad. Check the code and get back with us

It could be a bad throttle body too, check your maf sensor like ^ said

How many miles are on the car. Being an 11 it might still be under warranty. Just take it in if that is the case

The CEL is off, it was on when there was an issue, but when I turned the car off and back on the light wasn't on. I ended up tieing hand warmers to the filter so she wasn't sucking in -5 degree air. I got home without any issues. I'm putting my stock intake in today and if it works, like it did for the first two years, I'll just leave it in until it warms up.
