In addition to the vacuum leak hypothesis, which is _always_ a good idea, I 
suggest replacing oxygen sensor and the throttle switch (if you haven't 
already in the life of the car). At different times  they were the cause of 
similar problems in my 87 5ktq.

I'd vote for the oxygen sensor first, if you want to try fixing things in 
steps. And read about faulty throttle switches at
