First thing to do is run the complete code test (KOEO, CM, and KOER) and see if anything comes up. No tools required, as your car is EEC IV / OBDI. Jumper the EEC TEST connector and watch the CEL flash out codes. Instructions here and all over the web on how to do this.

Sounds like the iac (idle air control) is acting up. Silver cannister that sits atop the intake near the throttle body. Might remove and clean with intake spray cleaner.
