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

What is an ISC?


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??
