Idle changes everytime car starts

I have 95 XJ6, the car died one day and took it to Jaguar who said it was the stepper motor and replaced it. Ever since then every time I start the car it is a crap shoot on where the idle will be. Sometimes it idles at 500rpm, sometimes 800, all the way up to 2000rpms. Any advice on what is wrong and how to fix it? Every time I take it to the shop they claim something else is wrong and it costs $$$$$ but the problem never gets fixed. Thank you for any insight you may have.
