Are there any trouble codes?
Erratic idling is due to a fault with the idle control and cleaning the IAC and throttle body should help to stabilise the idling.

Check your O2sensorand check for a vacuum leak your map sensor is giving a reading too but it may be a vacuum leak causing the problem.

Check the MAP sensor vacuum line first. It can cause problems with erratic idling and the O2 sensor codes. The other code is the lockup clutch solenoid for the transmission. It could be faulty or the wiring circuit has a fault.
