HELP PLEASE - funny Idle issue

Ok the truck has not lost any power that I can tell. But sometimes it starts fine no rough idle, some time it starts with rough idle. Now the truck starts in like 2 seconds never a hard start. Sometimes when decelerating to a stop when I get down to 700rpms it gets a little rough if you rev it up a bit it goes away. Sometimes when I shut it off it seems like it has a delay and then kind of sputters a little bit if you not paying attention you wont even notice then sometimes it doesent. I swaped out cps and it does it on both. Its a new thing developed over the last few days. Yesterday it wasnt there today it is. My question is I failed a #8 contribution test the other day and could that be getting worse and causing this. Funds are short and I want to make sure I am not throwing parts at this as I already have changed, IPR. CPS, TPS and ICP, Waste gate soilnoid. I dont mind changing the injector I just want to be sure that its. I had the oil changed the other day but the level is good.

Oh went for a drive and it was gone then it was back. Its crazy.

Any help is apreaciated.
