Start with the basics. Look for vacuum leaks. Do you have any dashboard lights on?

Unmetered air getting in to throttle body. A vacuum leak. The ECU does not 'know' that extra air is getting in and does not reduce the engine speed at IAC

Good morning B-mark. That was not there when I posted, but at least we agree

Good evening F.N. I'm going to give advice like that to more and more postings. BASICS. More often than not, after going through a long and technical explanation of what could be the problem the final solution is something like this. " Oh the battery was dead" or " The check engine light has been on since I bought it and now it wouldn't start what could be the problem?"
