throttle switch

so when i disconnect
my throttle switch my car usually idles at around 1300 rpm
but when i have it connected it surges as if it has a vacuum leak or something
im assuming that the switch needs to be adjusted
and the throttle plate probably needs to be checked out too.
anyways does it sound like the switch needs to be adjusted or is it bad altogether?
