Question about 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew
Might want to check the IAC on the back of the throttle body.
I had to clean mine on my 2001 SCrew 2 times in 60K, from it getting gummed up.
This is where it is located :
2 bolts hold it on, think the are 7 or 8 mm ( ? ). Remove the bolts and the connector from it, and look inside. It should be fairly clean, so the plunger can move to supply air to the throttle body when the butterfly valve is closed.
The oil light could be another problem. Do you have a XTL trim level with the light and the gauge ?
Does the gauge also indicate low oil ( it is the same sensor, so it should )

Check and clean your idle control valve - this is always a good place to start for things like this. Failing that, check other sensors. Something's telling your engine to cut back the power when it shouldn't be - this is frequently sensor-related.
I'm not sure the oil is related to the other issue. Check levels and make sure you're using the correct type of oil. Too thick and it'll take longer to get about the engine, a possible cause of reduced oil pressure upon startup. Apart from that, it could be the sensor playing up - maybe have that checked out also.
Hope this helps somehow!
