Clean your MAP sensor with maf cleaner. Possibly replace the IAC (idle air controll) valve. Any scan codes?

Don't know where those r located and no scan codes

Google them. the MAF sensor is on the Air cleaner top, you may need a tamper-proof driver to undo the screws. MAF cleaner is at any auto parts store, it's amazing what that can do sometimes, I had a similar prob. once. The IAC is on the intake manifold somewhere, you may find it on google or utube.

Thank you will give it a try
