Default Idle Issue

Hi all, I have an interesting issue with my Ranger. When I start her (cold) she idles fine, I start to drive down the street and when coming to the the stop sign, I'll put her in neutral or just clutch in, but then the truck begins to shake and you can hear the idle drop really low. I have had her stall once (mainly because I give her gas to keep her running the other times).

When she warms up, it is not as noticeable and sometimes the problem is not there. I checked the EGR valve with a vacuum pump (while running), she did not like it and came close to stalling (that's a good thing?). I also replaced the EGR Regulator Solenoid recently and just tested the DPFE signal. The DPFE signal is .4 at idle and rose to 1.5 when activating the vacuum pump on the EGR valve. The truck does not throw any codes and I am wondering what the issue is. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Clean or replace the Idle air control valve on the throttle body.
