car idling weird

1) 1995, honda accord LX 2.2 (non-vtec)

2) The problem is the car idles around 1700-2000 rpm on startup and until i usually shift into 4th gear and then it calms down to idle at about 700 rpm.

3) just last weekend I tuned the car up- since it was about that time and i thought it might help the idle issue. here is what i replaced:
-spark plugs
-spark plug wires
-oil and filter
-air filter

I will be changing the tranny fluid and radiator this weekend to ready it for winter.

Any ideas on the idle?

Check for any vacuum leaks, clean your throttle body and inspect the idle air control valve for proper operation.
