It is equipped with a cold start to increase the idling speed when engine is cold. How high is the starting idle speed and after warming up, what is the idling speed?

Either there is a vacuum leak after the throttle body or the IAC is not working correctly. It could be stuck open more than it should and how high is pretty high?

You need to have the IAC inspected if there are no vacuum leakages. Did you check the PCV?

Do so. That is the main component for controlling idling speed.
