Question about 2003 GMC Yukon
Hi and welcome to FixYa!
The cause of this problem is definitely a faulty MAF (mass air flow) sensor. If the MAF is faulty the idle acts unusual like the engine's gonna die or something. Have the MAF sensor replaced and you'll be good.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

I have run into this problem many times. The dealer has a software update that helps, but most often I find carbon buildup around the throttle blade. To clean this locate the air filter box. Follow the large plastic tube up to where it connects to the top of the motor and is secured with a hose clamp. Loosen the clamp and remove the tube from the engine. Behind the tube you will see a large gold or silver colored disk that pivots in the middle. You can open it with your fingers and then put a screw driver in it to prop it open. Once held open use a tooth brush and some solvent such as carb and choke cleaner etc. spray the cleaner on the brush and area surrounding the throttle blade and scrub away the black carbon buildup, and then wipe it away with a towel. clean all the way around the blade top and bottom, and with it open you can also scrub the back side of it. Clean up your mess and re-assemble, and see if that helps.
