Hello,it sounds to me that you have a vacume leak.Check a vacume tube that is under the throttle body right in the middle of the firewall and the intake manifold.This vacume tube has a rubber elbow shaped connector at the end of it on the engine side.They regularly fail.

if that 2000rpm is start up from cold,,,its still a bit high! but only a bit,,,should be nearer 1500rpm cold out of gear,,,,

950rpm for an auto out of gear,,

hi, have you checked the cap and rotor arm, sometimes the spark will track back to the h/t instead of going to the lug in the cap hence a misfire also the rotor can have a hairline crack producing the same symptom check both for cracks, this may be the problem hope this helps
