    Might be a seized throttle body or cable

    sounds like you could have a couple things going on. First thing I would do is clean the throttle body really well. I'd take it off the manifold (no gaskets to replace) and clean it really good. If it's all cruded up it could cause both the issues you have. Another option is an issue with your cable and a vacuum leak or something along those lines. Clean it first and report back.

    basically just 3 bolts plus a couple plugs and the coolant lines that run through it. Would be a good time to do the coolant bypass while you have it taken apart.
