Just a quick idea, just check the little elbow piece under the throttle body which has a vacuum line running from there to the back of the motor. Had a few come off over the years and causes problems.

I've heard people say to spray some throttle cleaner or similar around the intake, with the engine running. When you hear a change in the idle, that's where the leak is.
