You could have a Air Idle Control valve or sensor problem. Your going to have to scan the ECM to find out if it is your (IAC).
Here is how to check your ECM for Codes.
On board diagnostic (OBD) was designed on vehicles equipped with electronic fuel injection so you can generally retrieve the codes yourself. No need buying a scanner or running to any parts stores to check th3 Engine Light. This system is called obd1 and applies to most vehicles made before 1995 for domestics and 1993 on imports. In this article, I will discuss the methods used by domestic vehicle manufacturers on how to check the engine lights in their cars and trucks.
For GM domestic vehicles made before 1995, the diagnostic connector is located under the dash panel by the driver side. To get the check engine codes to flash in your dash panel, use a jumper wire or a paper clip and connect terminals A and B of the diagnostic connector. Turn your ignition key on with engine off and the codes should start to blink. All codes should start with code 12 which is one long flash followed by 2 short flashes. This code 12 means the diagnostic system is normal and will repeat itself continuously if there are no trouble codes. Otherwise, code 12 will flash 3 times before flashing the fault codes.
The codes can be erased or cleared by disconnecting the battery negative terminal for 1 minute and reconnect. Just make sure to check your service manual in case you have electronic equipment such as radio or clock that needs reprogramming in which battery disconnection is not recommended. Finally after performing repairs on the culprit code, always go for a road test to confirm if the problem is fixed.
Good Luck and here is a link for gm codes.http://chevythunder.com/199295_lt1_trouble_codes.htm#Code

If this engine is a VORTEC then you may have a problem with the internal fuel system. Under the top plenum there is a fuel reg and poppet valves that inject fuel into the cylinders. Sometimes the tubes that run fuel from the reg to the valves can leak and cause your problem. This cannot be found with pressure check because this occurrs after the reg. PS fuel mileage will go down. Let me know if this helps.Moe

sounds like you have either a bad sensor, or maybe a vacuum leak. is your check engine light on? if so, then try to have somebody plug in a code reader to find the trouble codes, and that will be a very good starting point. repost the information that you get, and well be able to help you out a little better. if there is no check engine light, then you most likely have a vacuum leak. maybe a cracked hose, or a hose that came off of its fitting? its time consuming, but a visual inspection of all of the vacuum lines is the best way to find this problem,without having to take your truck to a mechanic.
