Need some advice

I have a 02 GC overland 4.7L H.O V8. Lately when I start it up it, the Rpm's go up and down between 1000 and 1500 when idling. It's almost like I'm giving it quick shots of gas but I am not touching the pedal. Eventually it goes back to around 600-800 Rpm's. What do you think causes this?

How long does it take for the idle to come down? Mine does the same thing at first startup but after 30 seconds or so it comes back down to normal. Check the iac and tps sensors. If there is carbon buildup on the iac sensor or in the throttle body clean them.

Yeah it doesn't take too long. Within a minute of so and it goes back to normal. Been working so much haven't had any time to do any work on it. Where is the tps sensor located on a 4.7L H.O? This is my first jeep and not familiar with the engine yet.

in addition, check your map sensor and the voltages on your o2 sensors. These all contribute to your idle control.
