My '86 with the same problem frustrated me to the point where I sold it. The new owner reports the car is running fine. At least you have a consistent problem.

IMHE, it could be any, some, or all of the following:

-vacuum leak
-idle control valve
-air flow meter
-injector seals
-fuel distributor
-plug wire or wires
-temp sensor
-throttle position sensor
-throttle close microswitch
-OVP relay or fuse
-flakey wire or wiring harness
