Need to answer nismo's question so we can help. But likely vacuum leak

yes vacuum leak would be a top check also maybe an idle control sensor. The check engine light would give the answer. If you don't have a scanner Autozone or advanced can scan a vehicle for free

Yes engine light is on

go get it scanned at your local auto parts store and that should tell you what the problem is. if you found me to be helpful please give me best answer or helpful for my rep thank you
