The first thing I would check is for a vacuum leak check the hose that goes from the intake manifold to the pcv for a hole in it. Check all the vacuum hose's for leak's Also look on the back side of the throttle body there is a hose that run's to the map sensor those get holes too.I would let the car idle while your checking the hose's that way you can hear the difference in the idle if you find a bad hose. Also do you have any code's. Let me know what you find.
