SOURCE: 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.

What does it mean when you VSA light comes on and my car will not reverse.

Toyota and Acuras are notorious for the VSA system. It is very efficient at finding a problem , but hell trying to tell you specifically what it is. Your Transmission needs repair. You must have it towed. Do not try to drive it or force it to move. Transmission will need overhaul,,,be sure to tell the mechanic to check the trans cooler also when it get overhauled. It usually happens as the car gets near its 100,000 mile mark.
