hi
check for any air leaks on the throttle body or hose that plugs into it and around the inlet manifoild.
other option is to get the contacts on/in the throttle body cleaned.
last resort is to get the throttle body replaced and get the ECU reprogrammed so its synced with both he pedal and TB potentiometers inside them.
if one of the pair in them wears out (resistive films in them) then it plays up.
