Check the codes, it could be an ISC starting to fail.

Idle speed control, have the codes checked to see if this comes up in memory.

thank you!! I was also told to clean carbon build up in throttle body. Would that be a quick fix?

had codes checked today..nothing. car ran fine so I bought some throttle body cleaner as a precaution. Was told it might be a fuel pump. any ideas??
