When did it start and what was the last thing done to the engine before it started?
Look for a vacuum leak and check the TPS and the VAM

What Jeff K said,

If the idle air was just replaced you may have left a piece of the old gasket behind and is now causing a vacuum leak.

But 1st run the codes...
