Default Start up - high idle isn't working?

97 camry LE
The high idle when cold doesn't come on initially. I have to keep on the
gas or it dies.. A couple of minutes later, it works fine, backing down
to 700 rpm when the engine is warmed up.

What could this be?

thanks,
mike

It's the idle air valve. The valve often fails from sludge build up that
seizes the valve but can be cleaned easily with throttle body cleaner.
Do a search on the web on how to do this. You probably don't need to
replace this pricey item.
