Check your CTS, next time it acts up, go under the hood and disconnect the two pin temp sensor it should be red, leave the single black one connected cause that just goes to your gauge cluster, the red two pin is the one that's sends signal to the ecu telling it the car is running cold or warmed up, if the temp sensor is malfunctioning the ecu may think that your car is still semi-cold and add more fuel like it's in the warm up process, that's where you get crazy idling and if it gets worse, your car will end up stalling and flooded with fuel and you'll have to wait for the car to cool down before it starts, you may want to try the thing I said with the temp sensor, just make sure the car is warmed up AND idling all crappy then as the car is running disconnect the two pin CTS(coolant temp sensor) and see if the idle stabilizes
