Have you checked/cleaned your FITV? That can cause it too. Also air pockets in coolant.

Get that all straightened up, then set the base idle &go through the idle re-learning procedure.

Can you notget the base idle (with IACV unplugged) down to 550 or so?

To add to the above post;
Also be sure there is a little slack in the throttle cable.

IAC sensor??

Coolant sensor can cause high idle, but it does that by operating the IACV (which you unplugged). Check for vacuum leaks & verify the actual throttle closes all the way.

Theres 4 temperature sensors.

2-wire fan switch in thermostat housing (follow lower radiator hose back towards firewall).

another 2-wire fan switch in the nozzle for the upper radiator hose. Not in the actual head.

A 1-wire sensorin end of head, below/forward from distributor. This one is for the dashboard temperature gauge.

Nearby, the one you want is a 2-wire sensor in the actual head.
