Check the idle air control valve and the EGR/PCV valves, throttle position sensor and the airflow meter-start here

If the engine is properly tunes, getting proper fuel pressure, there are no vacuum leaks. Chances are it is the idle air control valve. That is what is responsible for maintaining idle speed.

After thought. Make sure the throttle plate is clean and not carboned up in the throttle body.
