Senors,throttle positioning sensors and did a full

There is a few things to check. Take some carburetor cleaner and spray along the intake manifold gaskets, and around the TBI anywhere there is vacuum, if there is a vacuum leak the RPM will pick up, There is a Air Idle Control sensor on the TBI that should be removed and cleaned along with the port it go's into, that sensor can be tested at Auto-Zone, Must take care in putting it back as there is a major source of vacuum there, Then check the fuel pressure, change the fuel filter first, Pressure should be 9 to 13 lbs. The 02 sensor in those are before the cats, so taking them out shouldn't affect it, not to say it may be bad, Check Auto-Zone to see if they can test that or not .
