Please explain your problem in queens english as it doesnt make sense to me sorry to sound rude but its taking a long time to try to interpretate!like are you refering to the air filter ? please remember this car is 21 yrs old and as far as our europeon models are concerned thses car would have reached the scrapyard many years ago owing to the yearly mechancial inspection that a vehcile legally has to have when over three years of age .This inspection clears most cars over 10 yrs of age from the roads due to corrosion and emmisions failures .

This sounds like a vacuum control problem. Since part of the problem is when the engine is cold; a thermal switch is venting vacuum until the engine warms up enough to shut down the thermal switch, thus restoring a steady idle. Vacuum can be affecting high rpms while running too. You could have a misrouted EGR vacuum line opening the valve at the wrong time. There are sometimes hose routing decals on the radiator shroud or under the hood. These can be visibly checked.

The high idle speed at start up is normal. As the engine temperature increases, the engine idle should kick down automatically. Insofar as the emissions results, if there were a problem, the check engine light should be on. If it is, take the car to an autoparts store and have the fault codes read. Most parts stores will perform the scan for free. If the check engine light is not on, and the idle question was all you were worried about, you are good to go! Hope this helped and best wishes.

Here are the most common causes of idle surge, rough idle esp when cold and stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
