99 5.3 235000 MILES. WHE I START THE ENGINE THE RPMS JUMP UP TO 5000 TO 6000 AND DROPS DOWN TO UNDER 1000 RPMS AND WILL DIE UNLESS I BABY THE ACCELERATOR. WHEN I TRY TO KEEP IT RUNNING WITH ACCELERATOR THE RPMS WILL SURGE UP AND DOWN TO NOTHING

1989 GMC Sierra • 235,000 miles

When I start it up the RPMs jump up to 5000 to 6000 and back down to under a 1000 and will usually die. If it does not die it is a real low rough idle. When I try to drive the vehicle it will gradually accelerate until I reach about 45 mphs. Without pressing accelerator and start surging. When I come to a stop it surges. I have replaced Intake manifold gasket, Mass air flow sensor, fuel regulator, throttle position sensor and pcv valve.

Clean the idle air control valve and EGR valve and see what happens
