BMW e36 Idling at 1000rmp

Hi, just a few days ago my car was idling fine at 600 rpm, but then just recently it now idles at 1000 rpm. My car was warmed up at the time as well.
No check engine light, and it's not a rough idle to.
anyone have any idea's?

Check if the throttle is fully closing and vacuum leaks

Update: I sprayed some WD40 on the moving parts on the Throttle body, and it seems to have gone down to 800rpm at idle.
