1994 Honda Accord 185000 miles

the engine is doing this weird fast then slow then fast then slow idle when in park. Also, after driving and turning off the engine (like to fuel up), when I try to restart the car it refuses to start until it has cooled off some -- ususally 20 minutes or so. That's very inconvenient. We have replaced the " idle air control valve" but that didn't help the problem. I see where you have recommended to others to check the " fast idle valve". Is that something different?
