If there is no change with the throttle position screw, try unplugging the idle speed controller and see how that goes. Otherwise I'd put it down to a vacuum leak somewhere. May take a while to locate if that indeed is the problem :x . Listen for any hissing noises and/or use starter fluid to spray where you think it may be leaking and listen for changes in rpm.
