CAR WHEN STARTED WILL SHOOT UP TO 2000 RPMS AND THEN DROP DOWN MAKING IT TO WHERE IT WANTS TO CUT OFF BUT DONT. WHATS THE PROBLEM?

1997 Toyota Camry • 142,000 miles

The car will start but when started will shoot up to 2000 rpms and the drop down to where it wants to shut off but does not. Check engine light is not on and no codes are being thrown. The car does it every so often this is not a constant problem.

I would suggest cleaning the throttle body and IAC. If that fails, have the valve clearances checked and adjusted if necessary.

Any updates for the solution to this problem? Have the exact same problem with my 97 Camry around the same KMS

Have you cleaned the throttle body and IAC as suggested?
