Buy some throttle body cleaner. Remove your throttle body, tear it down, and clean it. Then remove your Idle Air Control valve and clean that as well. Here is a video if you're not familiar. Also remove your Mass Air Flow sensor and spray it down with MAF cleaner by CRC. See if by doing these things you see an improvement if not cure. About $20 of spray.

If answer #one does not fix this might want someone check the fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge designed to fit this vehicle. If the fuel pressure is not right....nothing is right. Car is broke.
