I'm not sure if you've found the answer to your question yet...but i'm having a simlar problem with my car it could possibly be the Throttle Position Sensor. Simple explanation from what I understand it tells the engine how much your pushing on the gas pedal and if this peice is off it can send misreading to the engine causing high idle. I replaced it in my car and it works fine now. Park was $30~ at Auto Zone.

Check that there is nothing caught on the throttle cable or around the throttle body or up under/above the gas pedal. it can happen that things get caught and do not let the throttle close all the way... my friend had a walnut stuck under the throttle cable making her car rev way up.
