Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

Check for vacuum leaks internally with a smoke machine and externally with water and a spray bottle.

Check the idle air control motor for not functioning or a carbon build up on the pintle valve.

Thanks, Ron
