    Mines does it too, it starts and and holds an idle of 2000 +/- rpm and slowly moves down as it warms up. Honestly i never really thought of it as a problem. I always thought it was just programmed into the ECU to warm the car up faster?

    Check the FITV I think it's on the TB. It controls cold idle and won't throw a cel. FITV = something Idle Thermal Valve.

    Don't listen to the guy above me. You can find a brand new iacv for your car on ebay for $20-30 + S&H that's what I bought mine for. And I really don't think it's your iacv if you're idling find at normal operating temp. Sounds a lot more like your FITV, which controls the cold idle until operating temp, then the IACV takes over.

    I agree with 93civicracer.. try replacing the FITV with a good one... maybe one ur boys could lend u one to check... also try adjusting the idle screw on the TB.. there might be too much air going into the TB and that could be why its idling at 2500rpm... it shouldt idle that high even when is cold!!!

    it should idle at 1500rpm when cold and then go down to 900rpm when warm!!!

    Before you buy the FITV, take it off, clean it out, and make sure that the plastic valve housing in the case is screwed in all of the way. Over time, this comes unscrewed and messes up the idle. Spray out the IACV with some carb cleaner while you're at it as well.

    check the vacuum line that goes into the front of the intake manifold. I had the same problem and just getting a new hose cured that problem.

    you can also try bleeding you cooling system. i had the same problem with my motor. I cleaned the IACV and the FITV and bleed the cooling system. It fixed my idle problem

    hey here is a thought....... check your coolant level ;) seriously its one of the easiest and yet cheapest thing to do.... the motor is surging due to low coolant
