Q: Idle is very high

asked by on

Idle is very high when gas pressed goes higher and won't idle down. Or idles down very slowly to about 2600 rpm. Replaced idle control valve and cleaned infected areas, used gas additive to clean injectors, thinking about replacing TPS, any ideas?

My car has 168000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
