mine will start about one and a half and then drop to below one once the engine is up to temp - thats pretty normal. If it is going up and down all the time then that isnt really - I'd look at possibly MAF?

Yep upto 1500K rpm on cold starts = normal - however a fluctuating idle doesn't sound right.....could be MAF (you should experience other symptoms though) but it could also be ICV Idle Control Valve ? Are there are fault codes in the ECU ??
