try changing your TPS (throttle positioning sensor) its located on the intake area (look where the throttle cable hooks to the engine) Possibility of a fuel pressure regulator problem. Also a faulty Idle Air Control motor (IAC) could cause the problem. ask a local repair facility for assistance. I had that problem with my grand prix. Replaced everything I could think of. turned out to be that the computer needed to be reset. possibly a vacuum leak...check hoses, you may need to replace you intake maniflod gasket
