It has 118,000 miles its a 5 speed. If you need to know more just ask.
I got this car for free from my aunt but she said it has sat for about 2 years, but before it sat it had a full tuneup done. Once I got the battery all charged up and the car running, I noticed that the rpms are real high until the car is warmed up. I'm not throwing any codes. The electrical components have an effect on the rpms as well. If I turn on the headlights it revs higher, shut them off it goes back down. It usually sits at 2000-2500 rpms until warm when it sits just below 1000. What should I look for?

Clean up the battery posts/clamps tighten it good, further you can attempt to clean the throttle plate-could be sticking and also the IACV.

It is only happening in the real cold weather, once above 30 degrees the problem goes away, I can live with this issue.

Load test the battery-okay now full the alternator to check what the regulator is doing-this will tell you who's not doing its job between the alty and reg.

BTW Carb or EFI system-could be a vacuum transmitting valve/TVS-check the PCV valve
