Can you be a little more specific on the symptoms? Funny How? Rough? Skipping? Excess shake? Etc... It might help to nail down the problem.

it may be time for an oil change.

Could be a hole in the intake pipes, getting too much air. I had a Celica with that problem once. It would start ok but wouldn't really idle. Would be really rough and sometimes it would start to stall, I'd have to keep the rpm's up when I stopped. When I started driving it was better but as soon as I stopped it was brutal. Check your piping, also your sparks. http://www.freshalloy.com/

Many things it could be. Some more common things to check are: bad gas (burn it down to near empty and fill up somewhere else), fouled spark plug (take them out and look at them), PCV valve (change it, it's only $2 and can be changed in 2 minutes).
