Throttle position sensor? Or there might be a film build up on the throttle plate itself. It won't close all the way then. Take the rubber tube off between the air filter box and intake, clean it off with carb cleaner.

I had the same problem with my 2000 lasaber and I disconnect the map sensor and car was fine so replaced it now car runs great air flow sensor right beside air filter or you can buy map clean air sensor cleaner and try cleaning it sensor cost me 200$ can
