did you replace the fuel filter and try a good fuel system cleaner and then check the linkage to for the throttle

Perform what daniel suggested and also clean the throttle body. DO you have a CEL lit up on the dash?

Sometimes check engine light is on..when tuneup was done it was determined fuel filtet wasnt needed. Will try throttlw body and checking linkage
