if its dirty the valve will tend to stay open enough to get air in to idle ur car higher, cleaning should work

what about you're throttle cable at the throttle body..... is it to tight, there usually is an idle set screw you can adjust, to lower/ raise the idle...

Not on computer controlled cars. And even if there was there would be no reason other than some problem that needs to be fixed.

My truck was idling at 2000 and it turned out to be that one cylinder didn't have compression. Could be a number of things though, take it to a mechanic who knows what he is doing.
