Scan for codes. Check fuel pressure. Check for vacuum leaks.

Anywhere there is a place where vacuum can leak from. Intake gaskets, Vacuum hoses. Fittings. Etc. I like to use carburetor cleaner. Spray liberally along the joints and other possible sources of leaks. If the engine idle changes, you've found a leak.
