Check the PCV valve hose. They have a tendency to collapse & then split. This will jack your idle up to about 3k.

At idle or when starting off car hesitates or wants to die, but when you are driving at normal speeds its ok

It is either the Idle Control Solenoid is bad or you need some expert to take a look and increase the idling that is rpm of the vehicle to about 700rpm.

Please do this fast or you might have your vehicle stopping at every red kight.

Good luck and remember to rate this solution.
