The Idle Air Control valve would be my next guess. You can try removing it and cleaning it. That may help or even fix it. They are kind of pricey so that's why a lot of us clean them. Most of the time it works. You can clean it with Brake Cleaner and a little brush. Here is a how to on replacing it. You don't have to take the intake manifold off but it's a tight squeeze. LINK
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
