I had noticed the problem was less sever when the hood is open. Adjusted a small amount of slack in the cable when engine was warm and eliminated the problem. Would like to hear if this resolves your symptoms too!
My 2001 Maxima had the same issue from about a year ago. I tried many ways like other people in the forum did; but it did not solve the problem.
I saw this posting last week. I noticed the throttle cable for my Maxima was with tension/no slack.
Since the solution was so simple that I thought I just give it a try.
Now several days' driving passed at very hot weather. The high idle speed issue has not come back yet. I think it is fixed!

I think the extra tension was caused by the thermal expansion of the cable (snake) tubing that actually is more than the cable itself. So the cable is pulling the throttle to high speed at higher temperatures.

Thanks for the post!! The fix took less than a minute...
