Hi there. In most cases, when the engine will idle higher after shifting into neutral or park is an indication of a vacuum leak. It could also be due to a malfunction of the idle control valve, or a malfunction of the throttle body itself. You might want to have a professional mechanic come to your location to complete an engine idle is high inspection, to determine the root source of this problem and recommend or complete the right repairs.
