To start with id try an idle re-learn.

Disconnect battery for around 15min
Start & idle in neutral, all accesorys turned off for 5min
Idle in D with foot on brake for 5min
Idle in neutral with aircon for 5min
Idle in D with aircon on for 5min

Im pretty sure thats the order off the top off my head. See how that goes.

Yep, that's for real. Forces the ECU to re-learn the idle.
