Your idle should pretty much be set by the computer and shouldn't change to much unless some repairs have been or you have another problem. In any case below are the instructions on seting the idle. Also below I marked which fuse you will need to pull out for about 10 seconds in order to reset the computer. Make sure that if your radio has a security code that you have it before you pull this fuse as you will have to reset it. Hope this helps.

I have a 97 ACURA cl 2.2 and when I start my engine it the rpm idles to 1. Why is that?

unless the car is at operating temperature , the engine rpms on start is hiogher the at run as the ECM has a higer setting for idle ( like having a choke out a bit ) until the engine checks are done and then it settles back
best run the fault codes to check for faulty sensors

Idle fluctuates

Its could be a few things. Most likely cause is you IAC (Idle air control valve) If this valve gets clogged up with carbon it will cause a idle surge on cold starts like you are describing.

Next your FITV (fast idle thermal valve). When the hot wax inside of this valve starts to wear it will cause a idle surge on cold starts.
