Sounds like maybe the egr or the iac is acting up. I would test the egr and make sure its working properly. Sounds like it may be leaking or opening at the wrong time.

Does the ASR light ever come on, like before the engine is started?
Does it work. I have a hunch the bulb is out.
Probably a bad throttle body/TPS assembly
