Could be a vacuum leak in the vacuum assist braking diaphragm (if you have one) Start the car up and press the brake pedal ... if the car dies then look for a vacuum leak

Sounds like a bad IAC (Idle Air Control) valve or dirty throttle plates. HTH. -Jim

Besides the above IAC and throttle, clean your MAF sensor.
