My Rodeo starts fine when cold. After it is warm, it cranks a long time to start

(1997 Isuzu Rodeo)
in Stone Park, IL on September 18, 2011
My Rodeo starts fine when cold. When it warms up and sitting in Park, the idle will surge and then drop dramatically to where it sometimes will die. When I try to restart, it cranks a long time before it will restart. When in drive and sitting at a stop light, it will also surge. The truck has good performance going down the road. Ocasionally a puff of white exhaust will come out. The truck only has 13,000 miles and sits in the garage a majority of the time.
