Is there anyway to adjust the gas pedal? I have about a half inch of play and when I idle the car it's like I am revving it. I have to slide my right foot behind the pedal and pull up and then it idles normally.

Does (did) your engine have a throttle return spring ?

Yes, that engine has a dual spring. They get weak over the years. Or your floor mat is getting under the pedal. Just have a buddy work the pedal while you watch the motion at the throttle body when he puts his foot under the pedal to lower the idle. Easier with the air cleaner lifted and set aside.
