Make sure the throttle body is clean, if that doesn't help then it could be the ISC motor is slow in responding and may need replaced. If it is one I think it is it's not cheap.

Try cleaning the Mass Air Flow Sensor that is in the intake tube running to the throttle body with electrical cleaner.

Just don't put carb clean on the MAF sensor lol, it will destroy it. They make a MAF cleaner.
