Most likely the throttle body needs to be cleaned or replaced, inspect the throttle plate for a build up of black soot, if there is soot, have an induction cleaning done ,if it is clean , replace the throttlebody.PLEASE RATE my service a 3 or above, if for some reason you can not, PLEASE ask me another question, I will continue to answer your questions even after you rate my service until you are completely satisfied with my answers.
