Question: My car idles high (2500rmps) until warm, how can i fix this?

So my 87 acura integra will idle at about 2500-3000 rpms when cold, then will slowly settle down at around 800 after 10 minutes or so. What should i do to fix this? Ive heard it could be the EACV or the FICV but i dont know for sure. Also, recently it started idling higher once i start driving it for a few more minutes. around 1200. but sometimes it 800.. The first problem though is my priority for its been doing this since i got it 6 months ago and getting worse
