Exclamation idle issue

hey guys, i'm having an ongoing problem with my beloved Ranger.
The idle doesn't seem to go down after i engage my clutch while moving. it only settles when i am moving below 20Km/h. this started up after id had my clutch & slave cylinder replaced. tried a couple of different remedies's
-cleaned out the IAC valve
-flushed and burped cooling system
-replaced T-STAT
i also did a brief check for air leaks around the intake manifold & surrounding components. Have had subtle changes with those repairs but nothing has fully stopped the problem.

(I drive a 2000 4.0 6 cylinder standard 4x4)

I'm open to any and all tricks or tips.
thanks guys

Bryan
