Hey there, it looks like you already did a fair amount of work on this. Another thing that you should take a look at is the throttle body. You may have to clean out the throttle body and get the PCM reprogrammed to correct any throttle body choking. If you’d like to have a local expert take a look, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to inspect the high idle before you follow through with any more repairs.
