Sounds like you have a vacuum leak or a bad mass air meter which is between the air filter and the engine

If you car has been sitting for that long of a period it may have water in the gas. Water is heavier then gas and will block your fuel filter which will cause you to loss power because of lack of fuel, as the water runs down/off the filter it always gas through then will block it again. Try some stp fuel treatment, read bottle to make sure it drys up water in the gas. Add some more gas after emptying the fuel treatment to your gas. problem should clear up.

It sounds like you may have a vacuum leak. Your car should normally idle at about 700-750 RPM. You said that yours was at about 1000-1500, that is waaay to high. If you have a leak somewhere in the system the car will draw in extra air and it will want to idle much higher and will also be very erratic and hard to drive.
