the idler screw is turned up did it do this when you bought it

no .


have you done any work on it or had any done. it is usual for a car to idle high when it starts but it will idle down

no work done idles fast then slow all the time


Throttle position sensor bad,or to randomly idle like this could all so be a vacume leak,near the throttle body.
