Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: 1998 chvy 1500 loses power
check the intake gaskets. in the middle front and middle rear. If they are oily, it more than likely sucked part of the gasket in. When it warms up the leak gets bigger. The easy way to check is to get some carb cleaner and spray all around the intake while idling and warm. DO NOT SPRAY ANY EXHAUST PARTS , carb cleaner is combustible. The truck should stumble or even shut off when spraying with the carb cleaner if there is a leak.

SOURCE: I know What the codes mean and how about going to fix them but will that also cure the high idle speed of 1600 rpm in neutral also the hose that goes from the air intake to the passenger side valve co
could be your tps sensor needs to be adjusted or a vacum leak(intake maybe)

Possible deposit buildup in the throttle body and specifically the IAC (idle air control chambers).This causes disturbance and your systems ability to control air/fuel mixtures at near idle conditions .Perform service, recomending removal of the IAC valve and cleaning with an O2 safe injection cleaner.3M makes a very good line of products including 3M"do it yourself" fuel system tune up pn#8963.Also verify proper EGR operation and no sticky valve or build up there.....good luck
