Sounds like your idle air control valve is either dirty or faulty and or the throttle plate needs cleaning. Turn you a/c on. Does it idle up? Turn steering wheel hard to the left. Does it idle up? If not it's probably the idle air control valve. Phone booth? Would hate to know I needed one. Might take you a full tank of gas to find one around here. Lol
