Is it throwing any check engine light codes? Sounds like it may be an issue with the computer.

My '09 kind of does the same, the idle go very high on startup, close to 1500 then slowly ever so slowly drops down to about 700-800. As far as the other stuff, doesn't do that, but I guess we have a common thing in the rough the startup idle.

My 01 FF Zx3 does the same thing. I replaced many things, but what it all come's down to is that our cars cannot handle cold morning ... Try checking your motor mounts, but I doubt is that. I was told in other forums that is normal on the ford's.

By the way my car has 72,000 miles on it and tune up, PCV hoses and vacum hoses all replaced and it still does it.
