You may try some seafoam in the throttle body.. not guaranteed to work.. but its a start.. you may take the throttle body completely off and clean it.. it builds up gunk after a few years and causes rough idle.. I need to do that for mine actually, its been a while

had the same problem. air does cause your vechile to increase idle, but sshould remain constant. another thing to try would be get your sensors checked. I have recentley replaced 2 and truck runs smoothly now.
