The computer adjusts the idle on your truck automatically. If it is too high, you most likely have a vacuum leak. Pop the hood and see if you can hear a loud hissing noise, if so locate it and repair the hose as required. Fords have issues with the lines from the PCV valve to the intake leaking. Also try spraying the intake carefully with carb cleaner while it is idling, if the idle changes, you have sprayed a leak. If there are no vacuum leaks, the Idle Air Control Valve may be bad, but check forvacuum leaks real good first. If the check engine light is on, have the PCM scanned for any trouble codes, this may point us in the right direction for a fix
