Lope and dyeing

Recently my truck has had a bad lope problem. It does not happen all the time but more than not. First when I start it up it will lope and sometimes die. Also occasionally when I press the throttle nothing will happen. I will put it to the floorboard and nothing. This only really happens at low speeds. Also the truck will also sometimes die. I will be driving and let Off the gas and the truck will drop Rpms and die. Or just drop Rpms and lope with terrible throttle response. I took my chip off to see if this would help and it didn't.

All of these symptoms do not always happen but they do occasionally. Any thoughts? Thanks

Does your engine light come on? I'd try to get a good scanner on it to see if it has any stored codes

I think it is my IPR. Took my truck through some mud and something probably got caught up in the IPR. I'll clean it out and let y'all know

Could be all sorts of things. I don't throw parts at problems. Start first with a proper scan and let me know what you find. The FREE scan at the auto parts store will not work on our trucks as we are not OBD II compliant. If you are near me I will scan it for FREE.
