when engine cold and I come to a stop in drive it drops down to 0 RP M's and then shoots back up by itself unless I put it in neutral or 2nd gear then it is fine. When engine is warm after a few minutes everything is OK

Sounds like possibly dirty/faulty idle air control valve or dirty throttle plate.

Name brand idle air control valve or one of the cheap on line ones? Went thru three cheap ones(two did not work right out of the box, one lasted a month) before I finally broke down and paid top dollar for a good one at a local auto parts store. Fixed the issue. Have you visually watched yours work?
