HIGH IDLE SPEED ON COLD START UP

2005 Toyota Camry • 3.0L V6 FWD Automatic •

When cold or car has been stationary for a period of time on start up it idles high say about 1800-2000 rpm for approximately 2-3 minutes then gradually drops down to normal idle speed. Is this normal and if not how can this problem be rectified.

It isn't normal for it to be that high for that long. Chances are the idle air control valve (IAC) is not responding properly. The IAC is what is responsible for maintaining a steady idle.
