Idle up and down

I have a 99.5 7.3 all stock engine and It use to idle up and down on warm up. I have noticed lately it does not do it anymore. What should I look for. Thanks for any help.

O i for got look and check out your exhaust back pressure valve it may be bad or the tube going to it may be obstructed and needs to be cleaned out.
