The Idle Air Control (IAC) is not working.... This is a very common problem and very easy to fix. The IAC will run you about $50 (USD) and the only tools needed is a 8mm socket. Disconnect the electrical connector, remove the 2 8mm hex screws, remove IAC. Reverse order to install.

It looks like the picture below

Seems like it could be a IAC(Idle Air Control) valve/motor problem. The IAC valve essentially works as an air bypass for when the throttle body is closed and allows the PCM to control the idle speed. The easiest way that I can think of to test your IAC valve would be to remove it and see if it fixes the problem. The IAC valve is located right on the throttle body and is held on with 2 bolts I believe. If you don't know what it looks like just google it and it should give you an idea of what to look for.

Sounds like an electric choke problem should start an high idle till it warms an gets proper oil pressure then kickdown and idle lower ....look at electric (electronic) choke for problem replace...

    Choke??? On a fuel injected engine? Ford hasn't put "chokes" on their engines since the early 1980's....And a choke NEVER had ANYTHING to do with oil pressure!

    I have a 2000 model ford ranger.. When I start it.. it idles very high and then settles lower... It has done this for many years.. is my truck functioning properly... additionally, sometime when stopping the oil pressure gauge will fall completely down and then right by up... it is like the truck dies for only a second... ever heard of that?
