I'm thinking TPS (throttle positioning sensor) or crank shaft sensor. Only happens in cold weather while driving down the road. 4.7L 190,000 miles. never had a problem other than water pump and wheel bearing. Been well kept.

    When cold it SHOULD go to a 'fast' idle(1500-2000RPM) for maybe a minute or two. Have Idle Air Control valve checked for proper signal and function.
