None of those possible problems have anything to do with idle speed. The first thing might be a very weak throttle return spring. The next would be a sticky throttle cable or foot feed pedal that isn't moving freely. Another possibility is a vacuum leak somewhere. Did changing the spark plug in #1 cylinder help the misfire? If not, you may have a partially plugged injector. Fixing the misfire will only increase idle speed some more. Look for an idle speed motor near the throttle body that is supposed to raise idle speed when the engine is cold and lower it back when the engine warms up. Check to see if it is holding the speed too high. If the throttle position sensor tells the computer where the idle speed motor is set, then it could have an effect on idle speed if the sensor is bad. The position sensor is just a fancy potentiometer. Hope some of this helps.
