Strange miss or cutting out ---after warm up? (I searched)

OK this morning since it was 39 degrees last night I figured I would give the truck a few extra minutes to idle. I started it up (fine, fired right up no smoke) let it idle for 3 mins, came back outside put it on high idle for approx 10-15 min to get my water temp up so my daughter doesn't complain about being cold on the way to school. I back out of the driveway and notice it is idling rough. I go to start in 1st gear and had to put it in low to get it out of the road. Pulled over and waited a min, service engine light is now on. I drive around the block to come back around and park and walk her to school. I keep the RPMS under 2k to limp her back home. I pull up to my house (kind of luggin it as its a fairly steep hill) and it kind of bucks then starts running fine...smooth idle and the service engine light goes back off. I ran her up to school, no problems she was running smooth as glass. WTF?

I have a pretty steep driveway. I normally back the truck in, but for some reason last night I pulled the truck in with the front end at the most elevated point of the driveway. Fuel tank is a little under 3/4 full. Would the incline have anything to do with it? Or the 10-15 mins at high idle? (Did I cause wet stacking possibly?) The truck ran fine yesterday. I am planning a 300+ mile trip with the truck later this week....this has me a little spooked. Any insight or help would be appreciated. I guess its time to get a code scanner for this truck... where to start?

if you could read the codes that would help immensely. pull the connector off the icp sensor and if you see oil coming through replace it.
