Clean your MAF.

Have your AIC checked by your dealer.

the ECU will automatically adjust the idle to 1K RPM after you move the throttle cable.

Reset it

Does it only do this when the engine is cold, or does it do this all the time?

If it does it all the time, then you may need your IAC valve replaced. I have seen a few peoples idle fluctuate all the way up to 5k RPM.

But, if your engine only idles like this the first five minutes or so since you started the car, then you're fine.

i think theres a part on toyotas called Idle Control Valve. A common problem on Toyotas are that they idle low. In this case, it's idling higher. Probably its that idle control valve or wutever it is
