    Check the throttle switch, if faulty the idle will be very high as running on the fail safe main computer, the linkage can wear inside the throttle housing so that the levers hit the end stop,, filing away the end stop can fix it

    The switch is inside the housing and a plug on the side, you need an ohmmeter to be sure that the switch is closed with the throttle is closed
