I had a similar problem to this and it was the ECU. If you can borrow one from someone and try swapping them over to see if it helps.

The idle speed is controlled by the ecu using the ISC to acheive the target RPM in the ECU programming (usually 750RPM). Set the base idle speed with ISC disconnected on a warm engine, making sure TPS voltage is below about 0.9 volts. Reconnect the ISC. If the idle is then not at 750RPM (in gear or out of gear, it doesn't matter) then it's the ISC, wiring or computer in 99% of cases. I'd try a known good ISC first.
