Well, in general the 'relearning" process is fairly rapid - but it can take some time & 'drive cycles" B4 the system completes ALL of it's self checks. That's why you can't disconnect the battery to clear a code before taking it in for an annual inspection - It'll show 'not ready" until it has time to check all it's functions.

Any idle speed variations in the mean time should be minor, major variations would point to some other issue like a sticky IAC or a vacuum leak for example as mentioned by BC.

If you're experiencing some problems with yours Gobliz, start a thread giving the details & the members here will take a few guesses as to what might be the issue & where to start checking for trouble....
