F150 STARTS BUT WONT STAY RUNNING

2000 Ford F-150

Other Category problem
2000 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles

My truck will start with out any issues. It will stay running as long as I have my foot pressed on the gas. As soon as I take my foot off the gas it dies. No strange noises, fluid leaks, or smells. I replaced the No 1, No 2 plugs and coil packs about 6 months ago.

Could be a vacuum leak but most likely a sticking IAC (Idle Air Control) valve.

Just for S& G I tried to start my truck after posting my question. It started up and ran with out any issues. It was cold when I tried before posting and it wasl cold after posting. Could it still be the IAC valve? If so, can you let me know where that is located? I am more of a novice than anything else when it comes to cars.
