Do you have an airconditioner? does it shows only when you use the aircon? it may be your freon on the system is depleated that is why the engine aircon idler up is upping your engine but no load. Or maybe your throttle cable has a snag inside the gromet that is why it is sticking.

Have they checked the O2 sensor, some times the engine will "hunt" if the car isn't getting a consistent signal from the O2 sensor. A car may "hunt" if there is some kind of interruption or disturbance to airflow.. check your air intake as well, i had a friend who had a dead rat in his.
