Idle Dips at the lights

My '05 GC runs great at 240km. However, when you come to a stop in gear the idle drops to 400 rpm and then recovers. The warmer the ambient gets the more it does it. It didn't seem to have this problem when I bought it early in the winter when the temps were cold but now that they are above freezing it does it more. When it was very cold it would occasionally stall when you stopped when the engine was cold. There are no codes and the dealer can't help. They said it might be transmission bump stop?? but I think that is something different. Any ideas?
It has new plugs, IAC and I cleaned the throttle body already .I might just start replacing sensors

4.7? I had that trouble with my Dakota years ago. Tried a new tps first, nothing. The iac did it. Seems hit or miss for which one fixes it, though usually one will.

08 Limited Hemi - wheels, tires, springs...ya know, stuff

Yeah I'll either change the TPS, inlet air temp or MAP sensor next.

The problem seems to be that it was almost 1 quart low.
