'85 ford LTD LX - stalling and back fire

My ford has been used by another person for several months. When I got it back it was bogged down and would not run very well. It back fired, stalled if you did not keep your foot on the gas, and runs in high idle in park and low when in drive. I have gotten the back fire gone but casn not control the Idle. It still runs high in park and low when put in gear. I am thinking it has to do with the fuel injection system, but what part? Any Ideas? And yes I know it needs a tune-up but can't get it right with idle.

You must start with the basics. Tune it up and check for any vacuum leaks.

Must start here before going any further.
