This could be
~ spark plugs - either they are knackered or have oil and water down their holes
~ lambda sensor - common thing. Can be cleaned or replaced
~ temp sender from engine to ECU - if it only does it a few mins after starting up
~ idle actuator - bungs up, especially with crap fuel, but can be cleaned.
~ air flow sensor - can be replaced.

Do a search on any of those words and see if other people have the same symptoms.
