Hello, In order: Something binding throttle blades; ie carbon, cable out of adjustment, bent accelerator pedal bracket, etc. Major vacuum Leak; at intake, hoses, etc. IAC Motor stuck open with carbon buildup... This is the valve that controls the idle speed by the ECM, located at the rear of throttle body. Good Luck, AskTrannyMan
