Default high RPM on start

Hello again, anybody know why the engine would start with a short run up in RPM and then drop down to normal idle?

Are you putting your foot on the gas pedal? DON'T. Just turn the key.

You could have a dirty or malfunctioning IAC (Idle Air Controller). Located in back of and attached to the throttle body.
