Weird Idle Issue

This problem started after I installed a cold air intake and only occurs during the warm months. it idles fine at start up, and after driving it around it frequently idles up to over 1000 when sitting stopped in drive and in park is over 1500. It seems to do this more frequently when I'm stomping on the gas and when my gauge is below a half. But the weird thing is that as soon as I turn it off and restart the motor, the problem is gone.

Any ideas on what could be causing this??

Have you cleaned your IAC motor? If not do a search for a how to... I would also look for a vacuum leak. The line for the hvac falls off of mine when I spray the engine at the car wash occasionally.
