Default Cause of car idling high?

Hi, what could be the reason my car (honda accord 97) idles high ( with loud noise)?

It's the same car I've been trying to get fixed for a while now (overheating issue.) I replaced the temp switch, the thermostat, fans are working fine, the radiator has been flushed not once but twice and has NO leaks at all and is always full yet the problem is there and not going away and not one of the mechanics can find the problem.It's always been a very good car and out of the blue, this started happening about three weeks ago. Now my car is idling high and I have to start her a couple times or more before she starts. This has NEVER happened before. I take great care of her cuz she's all I've got. HELP!!!!! Thx.

when the car is cold, open the radiator cap and start the car and let the engine heat to its optimum temperature, maybe theres a bubble of gas stuck in the coolant line, happened to my 1999 civic
