SLK 230 Power loss

I have a 2001 SLK 230 Auto. 71K The car bogged down while driving yesterday. I checked the codes and it showed a P0101 and P0221. I had replaced the whole throttle pedal unit two years ago so I find it hard to believe it's the the throttle sensor switch. After shuting it down it started find and drove for about two miles then bogged a little then ran normal. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks

Solved problem

Found an air leak in the hose down line of the MAF. Fixed, then reset the throttle and it's running like a charm.
