missing at idle but not under a load. Ideas??

My truck started missing and idling VERY rough a couple days ago for no apparent reason. The missing will smooth right out as soon as you touch the gas pedal and the truck will run great. I had the truck scanned and the dealer said that it had 3 injectors that were miss firing, so I changed them out with new ones but it still does it. The only thing that will make the truck idle better(I know this is going to sound strange) but is to crack open the water drain on the fuel filter housing and let some diesel run out the back instead of returning back to the tank. I know that sounds strange, but it instantly smoothes out.

try unplugging your ICP and see if that smooths out your idle. if it does your icp is bad...mine idles rough like that and my ICP is to blame......but mine is an OBS.....

also, check the nut on the back of the IPR as well as the plug on it.... sorry i dont have any pictures but just trace the wires from the ICP sensor, down into the valley and you will find it...

early 99 cclb srw 4x4, auto, intake, exhaust, and a bunch of other asthetics to make it look better...


*SOLD* early 99 cc drw 2wd auto, PMT2 pcm with PHP tunes, exhaust w/ 6" tip, MSP intake, AD's, late 99 conversion, gauges, Terminator modded 17* HPOP, and some other pointless stuff like the zoodad, 6.0IC, etc etc....

499K original miles when sold...

Thanks for all the help guys, but the truck is still running like crap. I wonder if the cam position sensor could be bad even though it didn't show up bad on the scan???
