More then likely you have an issue with the idle air control valve.

So let's start with checking the resistance just to make sure it is operating. I attached below the spec for your review. The valve may be sticking but we can just jump to replacing it or cleaning it if the resistance is not correct.

Here are some guides that help with cleaning and replacing the valve:

Let's run through this material and we can go from there. Thanks
