Question High RPM's at start up?

When I start my '96 3.0 up, it revs up to about 2000rpm and takes a little while to idle down. Even in this wonderfull Texas 100 deg. weather. Any ideas?

Could be wrong but would think it would be normal till engine heats up evven with outside temp.

About 2 minutes. Seems like a long time in 100deg weather.

Yeah, seems too long to me,too. Are the cooling fans kicking in right away, or are they idle until your up to temp? And are you starting it with the AC running?

Fan runs off the water pump. No a/c when I start it. Recon it is the IAC acting up?

I'd start by cleaning that.
