Did you check or replace your IAC? That seems to be a common problem.

My 89 has a 302, but I was having idle problems too, and I cleaned the IAC, and it helped. Mine needs to be replaced though.

I guess getting torque wrench and retorquing it would be a fairly easy job if you wanted to try that.

Not sure if you did already or not, but throw your problem in the 87-96 f150 forum, there are guys there that will be able to help ya fix it too.
