    Sticky throttle body I would say.

    When the butterfly shuts it must be sticking and not allowing for a minor adjustment at idle.

    Take it off and give it a clean, but be gentle.

    Could this be a dodgy o2 sensor ??

    If it was a manual car I'd suggest the clutch switch, I guess the auto must have something similar?
