Your problem sounds like a sticking IAC (Idle Air Control) valve. It is located under the Throttle Body on your vehicle. You have to remove the Throttle Body to get to it...

You can try cleaning it but the problem may come back. The sea foam will not clean it because no fuel goes through the valve, only air.
Additionally, its possibloe that you have a vacuum or intake gasket leak or a secondary ingition missfire. I would first check for correct fuel pressure and inspect fo a vacuum leak. Also, scanned the PCM to know if have some fault code stored.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

You might check the pulleys that the serpentine belt runs on. Make sure all are free wheeling and not loose or rough or make noise. You would need to remove the belt to check them.

Car stalls and idles rough


On thing to check is the air duct hose that connects from the throttle body to the air cleaner housing. If it gets cracked it will cause stalling problems and very rough idle.
