you will have a severe vacuam leak somehwhere.
check the pcv valve and your map sensor.
in neutral the idle should sit on about 6 - 700 rpm

I agree there, same thing happened to me, it was the pcv valve. But check all your vac hoses for cracks and flared ends, sometimes the hose may be on but the end is stretched and lets air in.
