High Idle On E320

I would like to start off by thanking everyone who has helped me with all the problems that have suddenly overcome my 94 E320.
Now i just have two more things to fix. I replaced the fuel pressure regulator and the car now starts up fine and there is no more check engine light. The problem is high idle, about 1400 rpm and no kickdown under 40 mph. I have tried adjusting the bowden cable and the throttle cable with no success. This one is really stumping me. Should i adjust the idle screw? the problem started after i cleaned the throttle body with sea foam. Any help is welcome.
