the I C M idle control motor is varnished up or not responding to cooler temps.it opens a port to let more air in intake like pulling a vac. hose,the pcm adjusts the trim to compensate for the large leak accordingly ,the air temp sender also plays its part to convey the cooler air temps.

could this also be causing the truck to stall out if i hit a puddle
