Have you replaced your idle control valve? Or checked the fuel and air filters?

Has the same thing happen today in the last hour of a 4 hour drive. Felt like I had to punch it to go. I did at times see the RPM gage twitch. Yesterday I changed the oil and air filter, along with some needed tightening of undercarage. I'm going to look into the the vale like Merrie said, and go from their. I'll let you know how it goes.
