Default Idle issues

When I crank my Accord ( Cold engine )the RPMs go to about 1000 RPMs , then when the engine warms up it revs up and down , up and down, by itself .
Any hints or tips ?

1993 Accord 10th Anyversary edition auto 2.2 L engine.

Sounds like a typical vacuum leak. Take a gas torch and run it underneath the car WITHOUT LIGHTING IT and if the engine begins to rev higher you have a leak in that hose.Otherwise, there are a lot of things it could be, read prior idle related posts which may give you some other ideas.

[:@]Yup, Sorry I did read about it now that I located the search button ...
For us newbies the search button sometimes is hard to see, remember we are not used to the page.
Is there a way to make the Search button more visible and more user friendly ?
Thanks for all the info guys

I have pingpointed the Problem and fixed it.
My fast idle valve was totally corroded .
The botton nipple on the valve, where the hose carrying the antifreeze connects to , broke off and clogged the hose completellly.
I have replaced the Fast Idle valve and the hose.Problem solved.
Thank you For the instructions doing a search on Idle.
