Question about 1989 Chevrolet K1500
If you slow down with out keeping it gassed it will die and it won't start for a little bit
You seem to have a very bad vacuum leak. Look at all your rubber hoses under hood , for cracked, loose , broken or missing hoses. You may even here them hissing. Replace any that you find. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

I doubt very much this is electrical. Rather do a visual inspection for vacuum pipes that are leaking or have become dislodged especially around the throttle body(Where the throttle cable is connected to) and plenumb chamber. If you find a place that looks like a pipe needs to be connected there, hold it closed with your finger and see if the revs pick up slightly. If it does then look for the pipe that needs to go there. You shouldnt have any pipes hanging loose around the engine bay. If you dont find anything on the engine itself follow every little pipe to where it goes/connects to and do the same. This costs nothing and a mechanic will charge you an hours' worth of labour for doing the same. The engine's fuel/air mixture is being leaned out somewhere. You can perhaps have the CO content tested to confirm, as this is relatively inexpensive.
