Idle stays at 2000 rpms???? Help..

I have a 98 Mustang GT 4.6 liter. This morning I got in the car started it up and it ran fine after running for about 10 minutes I came to a stop light and noticed my idle was stuck at 2000 rpm. I immediately pulled over and I turn the car off pop the hood check for any vacuum leaks and didn't see any. After I started it up it went back to normal. Hasn't done it since. I've taken the car out twice already any ideas on what it may be? Please help...

Sounds like the idle air control. It's a common problem on these cars. You can either buy a new one or place a copper washer of some sort to reduce the amount of air flow it gets.
