Running like junk

Truck has been starting fine then kind of stumbling after the initial start, but nothing after that. Tonight it got real bad didnt even want to idle and any time i give it gas is dips way down in idle. Als turning the wheel, turning lights on and even hitting the brakes effect it. I made a video showing the symptoms FOUL LANGAGE but i have the codes i have not looked into anything yet too pissed with my day today But Mike (Ranger4.0XLT) made it better by fining me a head liner. but here is what im getting for code.
sometimes the idle sticks in place and then drops to almost nothing then shoots back up

My dads exploder did that a while ago. He just took it to ford and they did a "tune up". Don't really know what all they did but it fixed the problem right away.

Start with a simple cleaning of the IAC. I think the 2196 and 219 8 are an oxygen sensor problem, the 0113 looks like a IAT sensor, and the 0430 is another oxygen sensor or cat problem. Sounds to me like oxygen sensor problem, but I would still give your IAC a cleaning.
