You may have a bad IAC ( idle air control) but try eliminating any vacuum leaks and cleaning the throttle body first. Remove the intake snorkel, have someone hold the throttle wide open for you and scrub the back side of the throttle plate and surrounding bore with an old tooth brush and some carb cleaner. Be sure to spray some into the small holes next to the throttle plate. That should help stabilize the idle. If it still has a problem, replace the IAC.

Thank you very much for the reply. Pls tell me where can I find the snorkel. Show a picture. Is it necessary to clean the throttle fixing place? Shall I take to the garage?

How much should be the temp meter should show after running for about 1 hour? Mine is showing half of the meter. One garage man told me it is getting over heated. Checked the radiator fan. It is working. Coolant not reducing or boiling.

I would have it checked by a qualified technician.
