1981 Gm 3.6 V6 Rough Idle And High Idle

I have a 1981 El Camino with a 3.8 v6 that won't idle down and also idles rough. I have check all the obvious. I am led to believe there is a problem with the electrical idle circuit in the carb. Any help??

sounds like the carb, the solenoid appearing thing in there probably just shat, you can buy them separate but it should be easier to buy a reman carb from auto zone or whichever parts store you got around there.
