I would check that truck for a vacuum leak. Especially if it's worse when cold. Sometimes a vacuum leak will cause the iac to act erratic. First check all vacuum hoses and connections. Then check the intake gaskets. To do this you can either use intake air cleaner spray and spray the intake gaskets along each side and front and back and listen for rpm change. Or use torch gas along intake gaskets and listen for rpm change.
