It is on the throttle body. You need to post only once. We all look at the questions and answers.

By the way. I suggest getting it fixed asap as a high idle can cause stopping issues

If you cover the throttle body opening and it idles down and dies you know the problem is within the throttle body area or computer control wires etc. If it doesnt you have a big vacuum leak.

I will check for the vacuum leak first. That seems like it would be easier to fix.
