this sometimes occurs with age due to egr and intake becoming carbon filled , inturn requireing more vacuum inturn raising rpm to keep up , check all vac lines for poss leaks this will cause prob , to check for leaks crank engine let idle use can of wd40 or starting fluid and spray lightly around suspected area , if rpms raise when u spray then u have found ur leak
Check your intake and exhaust modules. I have a 1987 D21 and had the same problem (if I understand your post). I replaced the modules located behind the driver side headlights and it fixed the problem. Good luck! I hope this helps.
