Unfortunately, there is little that can be advised without a diagnosis of some kind. The first thing that can be done is to look at the air intake system for loose connections that can contribute to an unmetered air leak. A vacuum leak could also cause this concer. I suggest going to a Auto-zone to see if there is any trouble codes in your computer.
