I have problem with my '02 outback, figured I'd see what you guys thought before I bring it down to the dealer..

When I startup when the motor is cold, usually first thing in the morning, the rev's will initially idle around 1500 or so, then drop to the point where the engine almost stalls, and then kick back up to 1500 or so again, afterwards it idles fine..

Maybe a sticking IAC?

Thanks for the help.
