Question about 1983 Ford Ranger
If tapping the pedal brings the idle down then try spraying the ends of the throttle cable with a lubricant like WD-40 or something similar and work the cable back and forth as you do it. It's likely getting stiff from time and useage. Don't be shy with it. Hope this helps.
