Default Hesitation and stalling

I changed my plenum gasket. After putting it all back together it worked great. Turned it off, took it for a drive the next day and after about 2km it started running rough at a red light and almost stalled. After that it started jumping between 200rpms up to 900rpms when stopped and occasionally almost stalling if I didn't give it some gas. What does this sound like?

While driving it runs better but some hesitation in the acceleration when you give it gas

Before changing the gasket the truck ran extremely steady, just a little sluggish up hills, hence the replaced gasket

Did you fuel up after the install? Could be just as simple as some bad gas or a loose cap. I know w my 04 if I don't shut my truck off when I fuel up it'll run rough for the first 1/4 tank or so. There was also a station that I went to that I later found out had water in there fuel and I would stall at low idle after fueling up there.

May just need some run time to re-learn things. The computer has been adjusting for a worsening vacuum leak in the plenum gasket that suddenly doesn't exist. On the other hand the gasket could be leaking again.
