I would first check the vacuum hose in front of the engine. Sometimes this small rubber hose gets cracked which allows air in and it disturbs the gas mix. It is a rubber hose behind a few plugs, but it's directly in front of the engine. You can replace the hose yourself for a few dollars at any auto parts store. This may solve your problem without needing a mechanic.
