Our '96 Ranger has the same issue. Sensor has been replaced, EGR cleaned, the dealership scratched their heads and told us "Sorry, we don't know what it is". Our regular mechanic has guess, so did the dealership, but the part is not manufactured anymore and would have to be tracked down from a wrecking yard. The guess fix (a part they referred to as (the brain) would cost $200-500 to maybe stop the problem.

is it every time? A high idle is typical in the warm-up sequence for the first few minutes of driving.
