sounds like a vacuum leak, look & all ur lines make sure none are un hooked or broken, if that fails take a can of throttle body cleaner & spray along the intake & ur vacuum hoses till it stays runnin

& pay attention to where u are spraying so when it stays runnin u know where the leak is, sometimes the rpms may even raise up when u find the leak also
