Default Idle Problems


At a loss as to what is causing my problem.
I recently acquired a 99 ram 1500 5.2L, and have ran into a problem that on start up the engine doesn't want to idle. I took apart the throttle body and cleaned everything, replaced the IAC and TPS but none of that fixed it. It only really does it in the morning after it has been sitting all night. To keep it running I just keep my foot on the gas for all of about a minutes, then I can let off the gas and it will idle just fine, maybe idle a little lower than normal, but it won't die. No problems driving it after that. The problem seems to be intermittent, as some mornings it fires right up and idles perfectly.

Any thoughts or direction would be greatly appreciated.
