I am having the same trouble. I have the same code. I have an 03 excursion stock as far as I can tell. Bought it used through a dealer and was owned by the government before that. What have you been able to find.

Have you tried unplugging that icp to see if default idles smooth?

Since it is running well now it will be tough to diagnose. It is quite possible you were still dealing with air in the system and that was causing the problem. However, if there was no air in the system, with the idle increasing all on its own, that sounds like the ICP must have also be rising. The question is whether it was a cause or a symptom. If the ICP or wiring was giving false readings, the PCM would have the IPR opening and closing incorrectly. Conversely, the IPR could have been the culprit. Just a few things to consider if the problem resurfaces.
