Unhappy Stock Engine no idle

My 96 TBird is letting me down. The car will start and will rev fine, with no shakes or stuttering, but once it drops down to idle, the engine will cut off. This has been happening for about a week, but finally the engine warms up, in a minute or so and holds the idle. Today this isn't even happening and the engine will not hold an idle, no matter how long it is given to warm up. Is this a vacuum hose problem or something even worse?

I think that you should replace the Idle Air Control valve.

Thanks, that is exactly what the problem was. After being replaced she purrs like a little kitten again. I LOVE this car!
