At such a high idle speed, a large vacuum leak would be possible if the engine didn't return to a normal level after warming up. The idle air control valve regulates engine speed when the throttle plate is closed, allowing air to maintain idle speed. A blockage, or malfunction here can cause your concern. Have a technician, such as one from YourMechanic, run a diagnostic on your engine's high idle speed.
