97 tacoma idles high

so a few weeks ago i got my truck back from having the head gasket replaced and ever since i got it back, the idling seems to have switched, as in, cold start it idles around 800-900 rpms, and when its warm it goes up to 1600-1800 rpms. Thats when its in park. When i put it in gear, it drops back down to 800-900 rpms but i can tell the truck is trying to idle higher. Any ideas on what the problem could be?

It's the temp sensor on the front top of the intake manifold. Less than $20 but hard to install.
