Sounds like your idle control valave is working okay at least it is acting like it is. I have a feeling that there is something else up for you. The normal idle for these beasts is 650 rpm +/- 50 rpm
whether in park or drive. So something is amiss. I believe it is probably an electronic sensor or a vacumm problem. The fact the idle is always high and not rough tells us that something is misreading the current idle speed or not adjusting it down. I am afraid I am not much help. Do you have a good shop that can scope the electrical side and gas emmission levels. Although this is probable only going to show a sympton of the problem. It might help narrow down the search
