vacuum leak, misfire, etc, Is the Check engine light on?

check the fuel pump and get the fuel fitter clean.

No, the check engine light is not on.

The throttle body could be sticking and it might need to be cleaned to remove carbon build up. A faulty TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) could also cause this to happen but it would/should set a trouble code that would cause the check engine light to come on. I also always warn that guesses without real diagnostics are just guesses. Good luck
