OK I HAVE A 2000 CHEVY SILVERADO 1500 WITH A 4.8. IT HAS AN IDLING PROBLEM.

Somedays it idles and runs perfectly, and some days it does not. It does it mostly when the engine is warm. When I first start it in the morning it usually runs great. It if fails to idle, it will stay running if I hold the throttle down a little bit. Also, if I turn the key on and off a couple of times, then start it, it will keep an idle. I was just wondering if you could tell me some possibilities of what could be wrong. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
