I see that code for a 1992 Toyota Camry but not the lexus you have. Its for a o2 sensor. Doesnt explain the high idle though. Do you have a V6 engine?

How did you look for a vacuum leak with carb spray?The best way is with smoke also have you checked to see if your idle air control valve is sticking?
