Take off your intake so you have access to the throttle body. There should be two holes on the inside wall before the butterfly on the side closest to the firewall. Put your finger over them and if one of them is sucking it is either the Fast Idle Thermo Valve(FITV), or the Idle Air Control Valve (IACV). I believe the top hole is connected to the FITV, and the bottom to the IACV. If either one of these is the problem, there is a thread somewhere that shows you how to service both valves so you dont have to spend $100 plus like i did on new ones.
