My Bronco 87 is idling very high. It just started doing it yesterday. I can't
seem to get it to stay at a low idle. Will idle low for a minute or so then jump
back up.

Check idle air control valve. It is located at your throttle body. Two bolts to take it off and you can clean it with throttle body cleaner. Be sure to hold it so fluid doesn't drain into electric side.

Better yet buy a new one, about $65!
