It sounds like you IAC valve is gummed up. Cleaning it with throttle body cleaner helps some times.

My 01' Ranger did that and I replaced my EGR valve and my truck was fine after that. I got the part for $45 new and took me 15 min to install.

IAC (Idle Air Control), use carb cleaner or throttle body, same thing. Use a cue tip and swab out the inside and it should run good as new.
