That's the problem, there doesn't seem to be one single fix. Cleaning the IAC resolved the issue for some. Others had issues with a temp sensor and others seemed to be caused by the initial throttle position setting. The X-Challenge issue thread is the best discussion of it all, but no one size fits all solution.
