Similar to the problem I had a couple of weeks ago Link
Do what Randy said, clean the thottle body, that will help. If problem continues, in my opinion start with the crank sensor.

Default Had the same problem

Hope your problem is this easy to fix. My truck did the same thing and it turned out to be that the throttle cable was not properly routed. There is a black plastic piece that the cable is supposed to be run under and mine was over the top. I just put the cable under the bottom, problem solved.
Notice the cable under the black plastic piece in the pic.
It's worth a look.
