Default Please Help! Engine Rpm trouble

Hello I have a 2003 Ford Ranger Edge 3.0 V6 5sp with 90800 miles. Manual.About a week ago i noticed that when i push the clutch in to change gears the rpms will climb to about 3000.When i go to the next gear it drops back down. This happens up shifting and down shifting. It will also do it if i put the truck in neutral to coast. I do not have any idea where to start to look for this problem. I would deeply appreciate any input.
Thanks, Alex

Clean the IAC. Maybe replace it if cleaning doesn't help. It's actually rather common, when the IAC goes out it will either idle real low or real high, just depends on where it was when it failed.

Is that the idle air control valve?
