Its probably the idle air control valve.

or it could be a vacuum leak..

I had this problem.It turned out to be the battery.Even thou it would start truck the amperage was fluctuating.My fuel pump was not working at it preferred rating so i changed it also.Try the battery first alot cheaper.Then if that does not do it i would have the fuel pump checked out.
