    do you have any codes?

    o2 hooked up? coolant full? tps any good?

    edit: does it continue to idle at that temp with no flucuation? or does it wanna go higher? possible intake manifold gasket leak

    Spray the Throttle Body Wire with WD40 and open and shut the valve with the engine off and see if that loosens it up? It could be grime on the Wire keeping it from closing all the way. I had the same problem took it to a mechanic and he laughed and fixed it in like 30 seconds
