LOW IDLE, ROUGH AND STALL

1995 Honda Accord • 97,000 miles

I have a 1995 with 97000 miles on it. Its a 5 speed. Recently it begin to idle low. While its idling low its a little rough and stalls a bit when I begin to acclerate. Once I am going the car is running fine unless I begin to slow down then it begins to feel like its going to give out, but once I give it more gas then its fine again. When I come to a stop, then the idle goes below 1000 and maybe below 500 but its not dying out but it seems like it wants to. I kind of notice that this occurred after I been using my AC a lot lately, not sure if this ties in with it. I am pretty okay with repair cars but I can not figure this one out. And I dont want to go to a mechanic because they are expensive. Another thing, I use the same gas every time if that plays a factor. Over night the car starts up with no problem, but once I get going or when the car heats up, thats when the low idling begins. When I been driving around for a few hours, the car start up but dont fire up like an over night start up. Please help I love this car.

Have the throttle body and IAC cleaned. That should help.
