mine had been standing for some time, had several problems like a flat battery moisture in everything etc. fixed them but now its idling high like this, (i think the automatic choke stays on for some reason - the throttle pedal doesn't return fully up) it is drivable if you can get it started, just go easy with the clucth, its better in 3rd and 4th. as for a fix i've found one possible solution i'm gonna try today:

1) Turn ignition (do not start engine) wait 10 secs then remove IAC connector
2) Turn ignition off, wait 10 secs then replace IAC connector
3) Repeat once more

i'll report back if it fixes mine, can't help with it not starting though i'm learning as i go
