Hi. There is a valve on the back of the throttle body called an idle control motor. It is a little motor that controls how much air bypasses the throttle plate to control idle. They commonly go bad leading to an idle that is too high. Let me know if you need more info on this or even possibly some workshop manual instructions. Thanks, Eric
