Check the throttle body, is it stuck open?

Air is somehow getting into the manifold. Try taking the ICS off and putting your thumb over both holes and see what it does. Other than that there must be a hose pulled off somewhere. With the TPS unplugged itll still run and the ECU will think that the sensor is stuffed so itll 'bypass' it so to speak.

Yeah, somehow its getting more air than it should. Have you done any modifications to it lately that could be the cause?

yeah I'd suggest checking all the hoses, don't forget the purge canister and PCV hoses - the hardest to get to often fall off the easiest!
Other than that I hope somebody else has some good ideas...
