Its an Automatic.

I'm really not too familiar with automatics. Check to make sure the BAC/ISC valve is working properly, I guess also look for vacuum leaks along your intake tract. Other than that I dont really know, maybe someone else with an automatic can help out.

I assume it idles fine in N also. While its idle turn on A/C and Headlights. Put some load on the car and see what happens. If it does the same thing, its prob what rocketman has suggested. IAC valve.
