idling SUPER low

so i get off of work tonight and go to start the jeep. turn key and let go after the normal couple of crank(only takes my jeep like .5 sec to start). it stumbles a bit and then doesn't start. so i turn key again and i starts up, but is idling REALLY REALLY low, as in like down around 100, just a tad bit off the 0 mark. i rev it up and drive home. it's driving fine, no noticeable difference in acceleration or driveability, but everytime i let off the gas, its back down around 100-250 rpms. any ideas before i start poking it in the morning?

oh yeah...in case you all don't remember.... 97 SE, 2.5L, with no engine mods and a leaky exhaust(has been leaky for quite a while now).

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

the only thing i can think of is maybe the AIS motor is gummed up and was having problems letting the air through to idle at the right rpm's.
