Check the vacuum hoses going into the intake manifold, there is an elbow connection that tends to come unplugged, check for cracked lines also. this is very important.
Once sure vacuum hoses are OK, remove the the Intake Air Control (IAC) solenoid, located on the intake manifold by the TPS. Use a rag wet with carb cleaner to wipe it clean, retract it using a back and forth twisting motion, then wrap the rag on a pen or pencil and clean the solenoid's housing, make sure to clean the far end of the housing were the solenoid's plunger seats. DO NOT APPLY CARB CLEANER STRAIGHT TO THE SOLENOID OR THE HOUSING.
Check MAF sensor, remove the plastic duct and look into the intake manifold, you'll see a screen covering the entrance, wipe it clean the same way you did the IAC solenoid. If you have not recently changed the air filter, replace it.
Good Luck and keep me posted!!
