i have seen some trouble with these.primarilly i have found if you unplug the throttle ass, and clean the plug with a good quality contact cleaner, this cure it most times,

once and a while the throttle assembly needs replacing or cleaning.

what trouble codes are in the pcm memory have you scanned it to see?
