I had a very similar problem with my 86 5kcstq. i looked and looked for the 
problem...i took out my throttle cable and lubed it...i cleaned my throttle 
body..and lubed the bushings. i disconnected the CC, i tried about 
everything....then one day i just got pissed at it and pulled the throttle 
body, and it turned out the problem was that my throttle plate was loose. so 
i tightened the two screws that connect it to the throttle shaft and the 
problem was fixed. so if all else fails, take a look at the throttle plate 
with the throttle body off the car.
