mine was doing the same thing.replaced the map sensor and the throttle position sensor.fixed it right up.hope this is helpfull.

Thanks. Mechanic friend of mine checked the car out. The Throttle position sensor is not working. Determined it was the PCM. You can unplug the TPS and the car still runs and drives fine. Still idles high though.
