F350 ENGINE STALLS/IDLES ROUGH

1989 Ford F-350

Engine Performance problem
1989 Ford F350 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 170000 miles

Engine idles a bit rough but not bad. Engine stalls after reving the engine. Almost like its choking. Seems like the rpm's are way too low. Starts cold at 500-600rpm's. Is this normal? Also am doing all the basic maintenance since we just got it a week ago and I don't seem to see the drain plug for the transmission. Do I have to drop the whole pan on this one?

Clean out the idle air control valve/mtr/ISC and test the throttle position and mass airflow sensors
