A cheap fix may be to just remove your throttle body, tear it down and thoroughly clean it. Remove your Idle Air Control valve and clean that also. If your model has a Mass Air Flow sensor, remove that and clean. All you need is a can of throttle body cleaner and a can of MAF cleaner. Should run you about $20 and just the time to do it. I could suggest other parts, but if you have any that are bad, it should be turning on your check engine light. Do you have a a V6 or V8 in your model?
