You cleared the adaptive memory by disconnecting the battery. It has to relearn to idle. It still should idle at very low, 500 rpm, till it learns.

Some times you will have to drive to get it to relearn to idle.

You should never guess on this. There are over 1500 codes possible. You may have actually caused an issue by doing what you did. You removed the upper intake and hopefully replaced the orings. It could be vacuum leaks as well.

Cannot give you a definitive answer without seeing it but I still think it needs to re learn which may require driving for a bit.

Back to square 1. You need to have the code pulled and then get back to us with that info.
