I'd examine the idle air control and blast it clean with some carb cleaner~

check the trouble codes at the auto parts store or with ye very own tool-

the reason is this could be caused by ANY number of concerns...the idle air control is typical on these...but to be sure you could get your trouble codes and post them here for us to be able to help you with any authority~

Replace your fuel filter then run a fuel pressure test, to could just be a plugged fuel filter, but the pump could also be going bad.

How long since your last tune up? Plugs, plug wires, air filter, ect.
