Could be one of many possibilities.

Take your car to your local auto parts store. Most will check your battery and alternator for free. That would be most likely.

Also check your air filter. If its too dirty it won't let in enough air but that has other symptoms as well.

Possible areas of concern are:
  • faulty MAF (Mass Air Flo) sensor
  • bad EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculator
  • bad TPS
It's most likely a combination of the 3 but the main cause would normally be the TPS (Throttle Positioning Sensor) which regulates engine idle speeds under different conditions.

It sounds like your EGR valve is either clogged or has malfunctioned. It could also be your IAC (Idle Air Control Valve).
