Prob need a new IAC valve or Idle air control valve. Some try and clean it and you could try if you want. It will be near your throttle body and have a small round body with
either 2 10mm or 8mm holding it in. If you do get a new one make sure you get a new
gasket with it too has the old one is prone to crack when you remove it. If you do try and clean it will prob need a new gasket and some carb cleaner.
