Check air filter and clean throttle body.


How do i clean the throttle body and the air filter was fine when it was checked


Google how to clean throttle body on the year , make and model of your vehicle and it will take you to sites and a video on how to clean the throttle body on your vehicle.


Check all of your vacuum hoses. One may have come loose or cracked to leak and caused the bad idle
