High Idle MY95 Legacy 2.2

Any ideas? Feels like a high idle cam stuck on an old carb setup.

May be worth cleaning the butterfly itself. If there's buildup on the plate, it may not close easily and spraying the linkage won't help. Remove the ducting and take a look. Move the butterfly open/closed to see the back side.
Don't spray while the engine is running (!) as you might risk a blowback (then you may have bigger things to worry about). Try a rag soaked in carb cleaner and see if you can get in there.
BTW, hope you haven't used WD40 for the linkages as it will dry things out and cause more problems down the road (pun intended). I typically use white lithium grease, judiciously applied.

Hope this will do the trick.

I did a search for a proceedure for checking the TPS. Couldn't locate any info. I assume there is a mesurement I can take with an ohm meter? Anyone know the readings and correct way to check it?

No CEL and the AC is off (no defrost either).
I took off the air tube and sprayed carb cleaner inside while holding open the throttle. However before I sprayed I did a visual inspection and the inner parts were clean, only a very slight discoloring of brown, hardly worth a mention. I also greased up the linkage and cables. The idle still is staying around 1000-1100 with the same other symptoms I mention earlier.
