Salomon : Many things could give you your condition.
Starting simple... Check and clean grouding connection to intake manifold at both ends. 
Very important that the manifold is perfectly grounded.
Also some air leak into intake system bypassing the air flow plate ( mixture control 
unit ) hoses, connectors, etc...
Finally check idle switch for electrical function...not just the clicking noise..clean 
connector to switch and apply 2 drops of contact enhancer if available ( Stabilant).
Good luck
