Clean or replace Idle Air Control valve and clean Throttle Body.

What an estimate price on that? I'm really hoping that it's something simple to fix. I've already put way too money into this car.

You can probably do it yourself just Google how to clean throttle body and Idle Air Control valve on the year, make and model of your vehicle. Most likely a video on how to clean.
