Hi,my name is mike and I will assist you with your question.
The most common reason that this happens on these vehicles is the vehicle sucking in air mainly at the intake manifold. The intake manifold gasket on these vehicles has a habit of leaking and resulting in the issue that you are having. What I would suggest as a next step is to have the engine vacuum tested.
