Cool start up issues

as soon as i start the car sounds like a subaru...it will rev up to 2000rpm and then it will gradually decrease. i usually just let it the car run for a min and then i leave. i wait until the rpm gauge go down. i dont know what to do???its sounds like the car is misfiring...

That sounds normal to me... is the car shaking/ do you feel any vibrations?

Is the RPMs bouncing up and down???

Yeah, i know, thats why i added that is what i assumed. if it goes up then just comes down thats something that honda incorporated into their cars to warm them up quicker, so i assumed he ment it was bouncing. my bad.
