You need to check for a possible defective fuel pump or a restricted catalytic converter (excessive exhaust back pressure)

may be a vacuum hose is rotted out that leads to a device only activated over that limit; or a vacuum device that just fails to maintain good vacuum when it hits that level of demand.

Idles fast problem


That would be your engine "choke" functioning. It's not a problem. The choke engages when engine is cold and shoots extra fuel to the cylinders to idle the engine up especially in cold with. Once the engine has sufficiently warmed up, the engine will idle back down.

2006 chevy 2500 express cargo van .What is a good oil pressure for this van. it has 150,000 miles runs great


60psi cold / 30-45psi warm is ideal. I've seen (with that mileage) 45 cold/ 20 warm and that's acceptable - anything less start thinking about a new oil pump.

Car has a cold air intake,when you start it cold idle goes to around 2500rpms and stays at that rpm until engines starts to warm up,ten goes to 800rpm


Nothing wrong with that - some cars are programmed that way. The Mazda RX7 would go to 3000RPM to help get the catalytic converters up to temperature as a way to pass cold-start emissions standards. Don't sweat it.
