Sounds like your IAC (Idle Air Control) Valve quit working. Its
located on the front of the intake manifold between the manifold and
the block. Pain to get to. As a temp fix just take strips of duct
table and wrap them around the plate that contacts the throttle stop
screw on your throttle body. This will open the throttle just enough
to let it idle.
