Question about 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew
Sounds like an issue with the IAC ( Idle Air Control ) on the back of the throttle body. Some times the plunger that moves to let air in the back of the throttle body at idle get gummed up, and won't move ( or move far enough ).
You will need to take the plastic throttle body cover off to get to it, it is held on with 2 8mm ( 7 or 9 ? ) size bolts ( actually a sheet metal screw with a hex head ).
When my 2001 had similar symptoms the 1st time I cleaned the IAC with throttle body safe cleaner and a q-tip. I rinsed the IAC with 90% alcohol, let it dry and reinstalled it. The 90% alcohol could be the source of the 2nd time I had an issue ( guess it dried out the rubber seals on the plunger ), so I replaced it ( think it was ~ 70.00 new from a Ford dealer that sells part online ).
Here is a picture of where it is located, bit of a stretch to get it out, but easy enough to do.
This is the plunger on the inside that needs to be clean and operate smoothly
