Hello, my name is***** are on the right track. Most of the time this is vacuum related. It is either a vacuum leak, an EGR valve that is stuck open, or a failing idle control valve. Most of the time it is the idle control valve. It rarely helps to clean it, but you can give it a shot. The most common source of a vacuum leak on this engine is the intake manifold gasket.
