Ok let's start over again

How many miles do you have on:
Distributor cap
Ignition rotor
Spark plugs
Spark plug wires

Have you tried to use carb cleaner around the intake manifold and hoses to check to see if the rpms change when sprayed on a certain part?

Have you cleaned the idle air control valve lately?
Is the coolant still fresh ?

Do you have any oil leaks around the valve cover

When is the last time you changed the air filter and inspected the throttle body for any dirt or build up

There was a Toyota echo 5 speed idling super low that just had tons of gunk built up on the throttle body the other day.
