Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. If this car was in my shop, I would be removing and inspection the Idle Air Control valve. If it looks black and covered with carbon buildup, I would be replacing it. This is a very common issue with these cars, mosr especially when the mileage is rather high. The recommendation I have for you would be to have the Idle Air Control valve visually inspected and replaced if found to be dirty. DO not waste time and money trying to clean it. Once they carbon up they fail; cleaning does not fix them.
