I totally had this happen recently. I did exactly what tom said, clean your throttle body. I took it off, but if you don't want to do that, you can very easily spray a rag and wipe it down. Open up the flap and wipe down there as well.


Also... In the back of your throttle body is a little motor with a wire harness going into it. there will be 2 hex nut screws, it is your Idle Air Control Valve. Mine had a ton of grime on it, and I cleaned it up with the TB cleaner as well (sprayed onto a rag) and the problem is solved.
