Why does my truck idle fast all of the time.

I have a 1992 Ford f-150 4wheel drive. When started it the motor races for about 20 minutes and then it will idle down to normal. When I accelerate it races again. I have replaced the idle sensor. It was a wire underneath the air intake. That did not fix the problem. Not sure what to check next.

Do you
have the same problem?
