Default 2000 Saturn SL2 Idle Problems

I have a saturn SL2, manual transmission, 135k miles. Sometimes when I come to a stop the idle doesn't go down to 800 or 900 rpms like normal it will sometimes idle at 1500-2000. If I turn the car off and back on then the idle goes down to where it is supposed to be. I have already replaced the ECTS with the brass one, so that shouldn't be the problem. Anyone have any ideas?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

it could be the TPS. Tapping on it to see if idle changes, if yes, replace it.
