Starting to get a rough idle

Over the past 3 days I have noticed that the truck has developed a rough idle when coming to a red light, doesn't do it all the time just every now and then and happening more and more. It kind of sounds like a misfire but when rolling it runs like a top. I have pulled the plug on the IPR ( plug on drivers side head in the front kind of by the fuel bowl ) and that seems to smooth it out. Have checked the ECM for codes and there isn't anything stored in the computer, is the anything else that could be causing the issue?

Any and all help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance - Robert.

if that plug you pulled, had oil present, then yes, need to invest into a new sensor..(ICP).

There is a tiny bit of oil present in the sensor. Would I be best going to ford for the sensor? Or would a shucks or napa be just a good? Part number? Hopefully can get it resolved before my 600 mile round trip this weekend.

97 03 Ford 7 3 Powerstroke Diesel ICP Sensor New | eBay

Or FORD for twice that much...

Dont settle for knockoffs/auto store icp or any of their sensors, for that matter. IF in a pinch, the CPS would be thee only sensor to buy from them places.
