Best Answer

This can be many things. Due to the vehicles age, I would first look for a vacuum leak. Replace all vacuum lines one at a time to avoid getting confused. Very cheap fix. Your Check Engine light should be on. If it is, a scan of the computer can also provide a clue. Of course if the plugs and plug wires have not been replaced or have over 75,000 miles on them, then they need replacing.
