Hello, this sounds like one of two things, either dirty throttle body or bad idle control motor, I lean most to dirty throttle body. get to the throttle body, Get can of carb cleaner, gently spray the inside bore then start, rev and blow out. Repeat this cleaning say 2-3 more times till the inside bore is nice and shiny.Then take on road and blow out, If to no avail? possible bad IAC idle control motor shown in the link I included> i still lean to dirty throttle body and needs cleaned say once per year, Very common problem
