it's not going to hurt your car any but it may be what it effecting your gas milage, most likely it's not a vaccume leak, or your IACV being that it just started doing it when it was cold... heres what you do that is probally the easiest, take the cap off of the fast idle valve, it's held on with 2 phillips head screws it's located on the firewall side of the intake manifold right behind the throttle body and it's pretty easy to get to, when you take the 2 screws out the cap should come right off, then theres a white ring with 2 slots across it, take a flat head screwdriver and turn it down, i did mine in 1/4 turn incraments but it took a full turn to finally get it right, try that and see if that fixes your problem...

Re: bouncing idle between 1000 and 1500?!?

Mine is doing it too, but now i can't check that... It has started a new problem... Knocking from the front of the engine. I think it's the timing belt, and I hope that i got it home in time for it to not do TOO much damage. It was still running fine when i parked it, but who's to say... sux...
