Hello, my name is***** usually means the throttle body assembly has failed but you will want to start by getting diagnostic codes which can be done at your local parts store for free. Another thing you can try without scan tool is cleaning throttle body. Get cleaner from your local parts store, spray it onto a rag, then wipe out throttle body when good. When done disconnect battery and touch cables together for 10 seconds with battery disconnected to reset idle strategy. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, thanks.
