why does my car have HIGH idle



I just cleaned the air filter (caked on dirt)
re usable filter k&N
now it's HIGH idle 1200 rpm upon start up
1100 rpm it settles to


did not damage any sensors or anything.

all i did was clean the filter I did not use the recharge kit as that is a scam I just used a paint brush to clean off the lint a lot of it came off at lest 2 ounces of garbage off of the filter

I tried having the battery disconnected for a week but that has not fixed it


I did disconnect the Engine vacuum line (maybe it got damaged ???!!? I don't hear any whistling.

that was to fix a leak on the intake (coolant )and fix a leak on the thermostat Housing

Did you have a look inside the throttle body ? Maybe it needs to be cleaned or a piece of something got stuck in it.
