I'd check the throttle position sensor on it and go over all the vac lines, have the system scanned and maybe do a tune up on it and check the idle air control valve.

Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way since you mention it changes during certain speeds a speed sensor maybe acting up so again have it scanned or have a full diagnostic run on it.

Sounds like a problem with the IDLE AIR CONTROL VALVE. Its hard to tell without actually listening to the engine though.

Check the Idle Air Valve. On this model, I believe it is located underneath the throttle body. Unfortunately, this part can run up to $200 at the dealer, so I would try to clean it first. To do so, remove the 2 bolts and the hoses from the valve. And using a brush/toothpick and throttle cleaner, clean the valve thoroughly. Then install it again.

Did it fix the problem? Do you notice a slight improvement? If the problem is still there it could also be a dirty throttle or intake. You can clean those with the same cleaner. Simply open the throttle, and with the car running, spray the throttle cleaner. Or if you have the skills and patience, remove the throttle and clean it with a cloth and cleaner.

Hope I helped!
