August 6, 2009It could be your IAC. You could take it off and just try cleaning it with some carb cleaner and see if that helps.
August 6, 2009im wondering if those injectors are holding up...2 yrs is a lot of time for stuff to sit, and plenty of time for seals and o-rings to fail. it may be worth buying a set of seal kits, pulling the injectors, cleaning them real well, and replacing the seals & o-rings on em. (and dont forget to run some fuel system cleaner thru that truck ASAP, as im sure theres plenty of gunk in the fuel system by now)
