Two simple ways to quick check. One is to pour cup full amounts of water over the vacuum lines and vacuum connectors and listen for hissing, thus locating a vacuum leak. The other way is to tap on the idle air control motor to see if it brings down the idle.

High low idle, rough idle stalling


If it's surging, make sure your radiator is full. Do a tune up, plugs, wires, etc. Put some fuel injector cleaner in your fuel tank. On a cold start the vehicle compensates for being cold by adding fuel. Once it warms up the computer tells it to quit adding extra fuel. If it is a bad sensor of sorts, check engine light should come on.
