Mileage 90,000. (Fuel Inj)

My Ranger runs fine if I start with a cold engine. Idling is not a problem until the engine is shut off after running for awhile. Then after I restart (while Engine is still warm). The truck will not idle.

I have to rev up the RPM to keep from stalling at stoplights. This problem will persist until I finally shut it off and let set until the engine is cold. Been looking over manuals and was wondering if it might be the "Idle Air Control Solenoid" or possibly the "Throttle Position Sensor"?

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. :
