Many possiblitys.

I would get it on a scanner first off and check air intake and coolant temp variances they should be within 10 degrees.

Possible vacume leak?

Hopefully some of the smarter guys will chime in!

The PCV valve should be on the drivers side on the back of the valve cover.

As far as the high idle I'm not sure. Typically a vacuum leak (plenum gaskets) will flag a check engine light with codes for both banks lean. Usually there will also be a ruff idle symptom when cold.

my mom's truck does the same thing on the cold days. I don't know exactly how high it idles, but it does it for a little while then it stops. she has a 2000 silverado, with a V8, pretty sure the 5.3. They are trying to find out what is wrong, but nothing yet.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
