turn your idle up and see if that helps.

Lots of ideas: vacuum leak, faulty TPS, intake manifold gasket leaking, throttle body gasket leaking, fast idle valve needs cleaning (if it has one). That's where I would start. Ohh yea, low coolant level will do that too.

Faulty TPS might be the problem, i unplugged it the other day and idle was up where it was suppose to be
