do you have a inline fuel filter underneith the hood? if not, try adding one, that might be enough to limit the fuel flow

if that doesnt help, it might be a fuel float stuck in your carb.

check your fuel pump reley as well

Does it only do that when you start the car or does it do it all of the time? If it's only when the car starts, check the choke or idle air control (and vacuum line that goe to it

Give some time to car, make sure fuel filter to be changed in every 5000 miles, always check engine oil, don't break your speed while driving more than 60-80, smooth ride can increae your engine efficiency & mileage too

ehh, i know thats annoying, but my Honda Accord LX does that too. it will rev up to about 2k rpm and the idle down where it will shut off. as soon as i refire, it idles just fine. i believe the whole idle issue is in the choke
