    did you change the TPS sensor at all?? or is it the same one??

    vac lines or sometimes... the intake manifold gasket can be leaking too

    i doubt that will fix it... if it is set from the factory... it's probably good

    try the iac valve... is that plugged and working properlY??

    is the screw on the TB letting to much air by?

    this may sound dumb, but that is an iac valve, i that the one on the bottom of the TB? i heard that if the plastic screw backs out some it could couse this to happen, is that true?
