Is the check engine/service engine soon light on? If so plugging a scan tool into the diagnostic 16 pin socket under the dash will indicate where the problem lies. The problem may also be caused by a vacuum leak, defective idle speed control valve or low coolant level in the engine. Check the coolant level first.

It could be your fuel injectors are dirty and instead of spraying they are spitting my cutlass does the same thing or it could be an idle clinoid problem just lower your idle screw on the throttle body or carb.
