Your symptoms sound like a classic vacuum leak or unmetered air leak (broken air box/tube/etc...). Check for disconnected hoses first. After that, if no luck, you will need to enrich the air with a fuel (propane, for example...) around various areas in the throttle body/intake manifold area to see if the running condition improves, and where that occurs. This is probably something less likely for the do-it-yourself mechanic to perform. Good luck!
