Check for vacuum leak. Spray carb cleaner around vacuum lines and listen for idle change. If it does u have a leak. U can also safely plug main vacuum line at booster(BUT DON'T DRIVE LIKE THIS), and see if it doesn't stall. If it doesn't then it indicates leak. These motors are very vacuum sensitive and I had similar issue. Also sea foam through main line is great for cleaning and can helphelp. It has instructions on back ofbottle.

bad battery? alternator? you would be surprised at the electronics going bad. check all ground wires, fuses and relays before you go dumping money into anything.
