How long since your last major tune up? Is check engine light on? Sounds like could be a vacuum leak or maybe even idle air control valve acting up.

After a little searching I am finding lots of owners with idle air control issues similar to yours. I would look into cleaning it and see if that might help. Also could be your throttle position sensor acting up.


Major tune up?? A while but I do take very good care of it so I should get a major one done. Yes the check engine light is on and I've 3 codes p1156,p1166,p1167...
