3000 rpm? This is pretty high for idle. You need to have the stored code read from the ECM. Usually this is a simple O2 sensor but with it racing to 3000 rpm I would have this diagnosed by a tech at a shop.

Hi,
You need to get your engine coolant thermistor checked and tested. This is what tells the ECM when the engine temperature is at normal working temperature and turns the idle down.
But when the idle won't come down from cold to warm this is usually the main fault.
Hope this helps.
Thanks

When I first start engine, it stumbles until it warms up. Once driving it, it races when put back in park. You have to hit the gas to make rpms come back down.

Check the fuel supply particularly the fuel filter and pump. Also, check the mass airflow sensor and check the engine intake system and hoses for vacuum leaks.
