The symptoms you're reporting indicate you have a vacuum leak. Look for;
1) damaged, loose or missing vacuum lines.
2) loose throttle body.
3) unplugged opening in the intake manifold or
throttle body.
4) loose bolts or missing bolts on the intake
manifold.
5) If you have hard shifting as well check for a loose
or missing vacuum line on the transmission.
You can use canned ether to check suspected leaks, the engine will either rev or sputter if there is a leak. Don't just spray the ether randomly that is very dangerous. HAVE A FIRE EXTHINGUISHER HANDY, ETHER IS VERY FLAMABLE! CO2 exthiguisher is best, dry chemical make a nasty and hard to clean up mess that is caustic.

    I have to agree with you but check for an idle adjustment screw that just might be the fix.

Mine was doing that, it also got harder to start. I have the 4.7. Check your crank sensor. It isn't the cam sensor. On 4.7 its on the passenger side on the lower block, on 5.2 and 5.7 its on the back of the block on top.

SOURCE: wont hold idle will start with foot depressing gas pedal will run with foot on gas but stalls when foot removed

Check and clean Idle air control valve. Make sure its responding to signal as well. Also make sure ther are no vacuum hoses disconnected. This may not be a "cure" but it's a good place to start.

TRUCK BATTERY DIES,STARTS WHEN JUMPED BUT WONT STAY RUNNING WITHOUT FOOT ON GAS


Some models have to be retaught how to idle once the battery dies, so you need to start the truck and feather the gas peddle to keep it running and do this for a few minutes, the computer has to relearn how to idle the engine.

Running problems


Idle air control valve or a vacuum leak, the idle air control valve controls the amount of air let into your engine when you start or while running you holding your foot on the gas lets more air in.

In park the engine dies; only will run if given gas


It sounds like there is a problem with the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. Its job is to open and let air into the manifold when the throttle is closed at idle. If it does not open, the engine dies at idle. The IAC is mounted on the throttle body. Possibly the valve is clogged or stuck, in which case it could be ok again if it is removed and cleaned. Or it is broken, and needs to be replaced. Or, there is a problem with its electrical connection, that needs to be traced. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.

CAR WONT IDLE, NOT ALTERNATOR


The computer loses it's memory when it is disconnected from the battery for any amount of time. Part of this is the engine idle. The fastest way to "cure" this (takes about 5 mins) is to start it up and give it enough gas to keep it running. Then let off the gas so that it ALMOST stalls and give it a little more gas to keep it running. Repeat about 5-10 times (you will notice it improving). You will need to do this with the AC on and with it off as the idle requirements are different. This worked great in my standard transmission. In the automatic, it's possible you may need to also do the same while it is in the various gears. It's a FAST fix though!
