You make have a valve cover gasket leaking. After 2 years of sitting it could have dried out.

Have you checked for vacuum leaks? Poor idling when cold that gets better when the engine warms up, or at higher RPMs are symptoms of vacuum leaks. Check all hoses and connectors. If it's a manifold gasket, you will want to use a smoke machine (check when the engine is cold).

Please help what can I do my Corolla 20vavle rsi blacktop the revels rise to higher when it starts

Normally when you start a cold engine, the revs is up and drops after the engine warms up. That is norm but if you say the revs goes higher after warm up, there could be many issues to check like leaking vacuum pipes, throttle lever if stuck, throttle position sensor etc

When i start in the morning my 320d bmw litlbit smoke and engine shaking.after 5-10 minit when wom up then ok evre thing,please can let me know what is the problem???thank you.

perhaps some water condensation in the empty tank that then caused the smoke and shaking during warming up.

Refill with good branded Diesel a full tank and have a drive for 30 mins possibly warming at high revs (or low gear to warm faster)

After my 03 jeep liberty warms up to normal, the idle begins to fluctuate until it goes down to 500 rpms than wants to shut off but revs itself up to stay on, now when I am in park and rev the rpms up it...

It's not a gas pedal, it's an air pedal. Fuel injected engines are all about air flow at idle. take off the intake snorkel and check out your throttle body. You may just need a new throttle position sensor, or the Idle solenoid that regulates idle air flow is stuck. The computer will try to compensate, but it can only do so much.

When i start the car it revs up to 2000 rpms or sruggles at around 200 or 300 rpms. After it warms up the problem seems to go away. Their is no check engine light on.

You have a vacume leak, and once the temp sensor starts to read after the warm up the ecm starts to control. I would also check IAC idle air control valve.

I have a 1994 Dodge Dakota, no power at low rpms

yes it does if it is reading lets say lower than normal that would explain easy start up and stalling later.the coolant temp sensor has two wires .so if your car warms up and your coolant is about 200 degrees your coolant sensor might say 80 degrees .access to a scanner to check temp would be great.

Have you by any chance, monitored fuel pressure from start-up to warm-up point where it will not rev? Would not be uncommon for fuel pump to start acting up, about the same time engine gets warmed up.
