Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

Any warning lights on while running?

Above idle does it run fine?

Try cleaning the throttle body using brake cleaner and a tooth brush. Then remove both battery cables and hold them together for 1 minute then 30 minutes later reconnect them and start the vehicle and let it idle for 10 minutes.

This is my 1st answer, but does not have to be my only answer. You the website and myself expect you to have a ~~~5 STAR EXCELLENT~~~ experience with my help.
