some times the throtle body will get dirty and need to be cleaned . air inductoin cleaning should work . cost around 89. to 129.
I'd bet it's your throttle body plate - after a while the plate can get carbon build up and stick. You can take it off - it's connected to your uppper intake manifold (you'll need to replace the gasket) and torque back on to proper spec. They sell throttle body cleaner. Just spray it on and wipe the sludge off with a rag. It'll cost you $15 and less than one hour (if you don't have a torque wrench go to harbor freight they have good ones for cheap.)
