ck your idle air control valve to see if it is woking, sounds like its stuck

checked iac was sticking.cleaned it checked map sesor to turck started running better.then a new problem occured.truck was running hot.changed the thermostat.truick runs ok now.but noticed the temp gauge stays in normal range while sitting at idle.when i take it down the road for a drive it gets up to 230 degrees.going to check temp sensor may be a faulty reading.but over all the truck is running a lot better.thanks for your advice.will get back later with final results on overall performance
