Toyota - '97 4runner high idle in park, neutral and...

3rd Generation (1996-2002) - Toyota Nation Forum : Toyota Car and Truck Forums - www.toyotanation.com
so my 97 automatic 4runner sr5 6cyl has a high idle on start up, warm or cold, at about 2000+ rpms. my car has over 280k on it and runs great other then this. when put in drive, the idle will drop down to about 1000-1100rpms and i feel like i have to stand on the brake because it will surge forward. i've tried reving the engine in park or neutral and it doesn't help with bringing the idle down. if i shut the car off at this high idle, sometimes when i go to start it again, i have to stand on the gas pedal for about 30 secs. before it will sputter back to life and there is a strong smell of fuel. I was wondering if this could possibly be the idle control valve? and if it could be, can it be cleaned or should i just replace it? any input or information would be great!
