Vacuum leak. This will cause a high petrol idle and the computer compensates for a lean idle and gas HATES vacuum leaks.

Get some WD40 and start spraying all along the intake path with the engine running. When the idle changes you have found your leak.

ps you seem to have a lot of problems, or a lot of cars.....

are you idle mixtures set correctly on gas?

is the throttle body screw set in to far, and the gas mixture not in far enough?
