    maybe one of your sparkplug wires is burned sometimes that happens and you dont even think about checking . Make sure you check all your wires and sparkplugs.

    Clean you IAC motor... Two torx screws, pull it off, spray down with eletronics cleaner or maf cleaner and get all the carbon and oil off of it and see what happens.
