The cap & rotor should be checked, make sure you are getting a white spark. The Idle Control Valve may need to be replaced along with the port it goes into gets all full of crap, that needs to be clean out on the Throttle Body, easiest way is to take it off and clean the throttle body and injectors with carb cleaner, replace the base gasket, and make sure the EGR and system is working.
