06 6.0 idle issues

I have an 06 6.0 and sometimes durring a warm idle it will drop rom slightly just for a second then come back up. It also feels as though when under acceleration it will cut out quickly then come right back. Any ideas? Anywhere to start digging into this problem? Thanks

Sounds like it may have a ICP issue.

Check the plug for grease etc, they are variable resistance pressure switches and are known for idle issues when either bad connection or going bad.
