Default Fast idle on startup

My daughter owns a 2000 Saturn SL. Her husband says it idles too fast on start-up, but once the car is warmed up it goes back to normal. Any idea what would cause this?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Fast idle on startup

It is supposed to do that. When first started jumps up to about 1800 and settles down to 1400 and then drifts down to normal as the engine warms up.
