it could be the coolant temp unit. it senses the engine temp and adjust the throttle occordingly so the engine can easly worm up to operating temp. when i first start my 1990 tracker up, it will idle at around 2,000 rpm until it warms up then it will idle at around 700 rpms.

automatic idle switch.Nah. Supprised that your engine hasn't 'gernaded'! Something's mechanically sticking in WOT (wide open thottle) when you first start up; like the throttle plate/accellerator cable???

My 2003 Chevy Tracker would not restart when it was hot and finally would stall & not restart until it sat and cooled off for 10 minutes. It would crank but not start.

High revving of engine 5000 - 6000 rpms until it warms up on a 2000 VW New Beetle?

If your doing it on purpose then DON'T.If the engine is doing it via the computer you need to take it into the shop and have them look at it. There seems to be a bad sensor telling the computer wrong information. Running at a high rpm when the motor is cold and with no load is not good for it.
