Hello, my name is***** most likely means you have a dirty throttle body or failing mass airflow sensor. You can get some throttle body cleaner from your local parts store, spray onto a rag, then wipe out good as possible. If this doesn't help unplug the mass airflow sensor to see if it runs better, if so replace. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.
