car's rpm is high when i start the car

for a while now my car's rpm is at like 3000 rpm when i start it after like couple of hours. i understand this happens when its cold, but even in the hot summre days its like this too. when the rpm is like that, i dont even have to gas.. i just slowly let go of the clutch and the car rolls forward. is this normal to happen when its hot??

Re: car's rpm is high when i start the car

okay ... your its definitely and idle problem like stated before..either the intake air control valve ...or fast idle valve. 9 out 10 times its the fast idle. there is a mod called coolant bypass... look it up... it shows you how to eliminate the fast idle valve. the reason for the fast idle valve in the first place is to help speed up warming up the air being taken in by the intake for colder temp places like for example alaska LOL. hope this helps.
