On a 2009 Aura 2.4l auto transmission, I was having trouble…

Hello, on a 2009 Aura...
Hello, on a 2009 Aura 2.4l auto transmission, I was having trouble with engine performance specially taking off from a light. The vehicle hesitates to take off and had no much power. While inspecting the possibilities I found the throttle body extremely dirty, so I cleaned it. Now the vehicle has lots of power but won't idle. It stays around 3000rpms and dont want to go down. I've disconnected the battery and tried to relearn by driving it but no success. Could it be damaged? or some other way to relearn?
thanks

It does. I can move it a little bit. It seems free

does it spring back a little when you push it fully closed or does it stay there?

Ask Your Own Saturn Question

did you remove the throttle body or did you clean it still installed?
