The idling may be a loose connection to the "idle air control valve". if the control valve connection is secure, then it could also be a bad Throttle Positioning Sensor (TPS). To test the TPS, tap it with a screwdriver while the engine is self-revving, and see if the reving changes when tapped. if its not the TPS, then try cleaning the throttle body.
