boostjunkie1 will become famous soon enough

The fast idle can be lowered by pressing the gas pedal quickley, or by pressing the brake in hard and putting the vehicle in gear. The engine will reduce RPM before the Tranny will engage in gear as long as the brake is in all the way. This programming is built in to save the tranny........ All is NORMAL and to be expected. My last Toyota Tacoma had a freaking high idle that was the same in Hot and Cold climates. Sounded like the engine was going to blow up sometimes
