This is normal, if the idle wasn't high (about 2,500 RPM) the engine wopuld stall out until it warms up to normal temperature. If it is above 3000 RPM for more than a few seconds you have a problem.

It is probably the iac (idle air control) valve. it will cause a high idle, if you put it in drive and let off brake n it takes off fast thats what it is

That is just the way the engine warms itself up to operating temp and gets the oil and fluids moving around to lubricate the engine.

Why does my ford taurus idle high code P1506


The code is for the idle air control valve which controls idle speed.
The problem could be a faulty control valve, or a vac leak which is letting in air to the intake and bypassing the control valve.

98 ford taurus starts runs 5 seconds then dies


Something is disconnected.Is the MAF (mass air flow tube on ) is the MAF electrical part connected in its socket,Vacuum hose to the intake manifold. (Will have a way high idle and you would hear it) Idle air control hook up? Can you maintain a high idle pressing on the gas pedal,if you can the IAC(idle air control) is the problem,other than that some thing is disconnected.
