Sounds like you could have an intake leak. Get some spray start (Starting fluid) - when it is idling, spray along seams of intake manifold - if idle smooths out, you have a bad intake gasket.

When was the last time you changed the plugs and wires? And if the check engine light is on what are the codes?
