We first need to check the throttle plate to make sure it is not sticking. Remove the air tube to check the throttle. We can use some cleaner on a lint free cloth and wipe the throttle bore and blade. Also check the linkage and cables for binding. Look for any damaged hoses around the throttle and air intake as well. Let me know.
