Any number of things. I'd scan for codes first, if none, then change the plugs and filters, clean the throttle body and Idle Control Valve.

depending on mileage sometimes a stuck dpfe sensor will cause some drivability concerns,due to the fact that you have insuffiecent egr flow,ck for codes,if egr concern you might have a p0401 code,hope this helps
