Sounds like your Idle Air Control valve is plugged or has failed. I would try cleaning it first. Buy some throttle body cleaner and go right through it. You can get on youtube and watch a couple of videos to give you an idea if you've never done it. Not the same model vehicle, but you will get the idea.
