How old is the fuel? was the truck siting a long time? Time to do the basics, like fluids and filters, spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor, clean the throttle body and IAC.

Fuel is good, hasn't been sitting long its been a daily driver for the guy before me. But this started doing it on him so he sold it. To me. I already went though the basics ...spark plugs, wires, cap and roter. There all new. Havnt cleaned the TBi or the IAC. I might of thought it might be a EGR valve also?

I wouldn't guess on the EGR, they are around $90. Scan the truck for the codes, some older Fords didn't have a check engine light in the instrument cluster, but you can still pull the OBDi codes.

Ok, i didnt think it would be a IAC because you can pull one of those out while the car is running and it will still stay running. Im gunna need another person to help me if im going to check it while its running. And keep there foot on the gas so it dosnt die. And i dont have a code reader
