Change your air filter and fuel filters.It's either not getting enough air or gas,or possibly both,but JUST enough to run.

get a trouble code from Autozone or other store for free. It sounds like a sensor problem to me. The Idle Position sensor for example.

Testimonial: "thanks, no sparkplug or fuel injection problems?"
Check the throttle body and see if it has build up around the butterfly. If so, clean the butterfly with throttle body cleaner. This may be it. There are other possibilities but this is a simple inspection.

After about 100K + miles the idle air control valve (IAC) begins to collect carbon deposits that interfere with the movement of the spring-loaded valve. You will not be able to clean this without removal and dissembly of the IAC body. Use an emory cloth or fine sandpaper to remove the build up around the valve. This should free it up to rotate without binding. This is a temporary fix, of course, and will either require cleaning again or replacement of the valve. Getting to the IAC requires removal of most of the intake upto, but not including, the intake manifold. Total time is approximately 3-4 hours, but worth it. Good luck, and I hope this helps.

I would change the transmission filter.if clogged it will slip and loose power on steep upgrades try that it is inexpensive. If that don't help you may need a new transmission.
