Sounds like normal cold start.

The best thing to do is to take it to the dealership for evaluation. FYI,
in automotive terms, a "cold start" is one where the engine has not been run
for four hours or so, regardless of the ambient air temperature.

Re: corolla revs on starting

I rang the dealership to book it in and was told by the guy I spoke to
that revving was quite normal on cold start - up to 2500 is OK. He
seemed quite genuine about it, so I'm just going to keep an eye on the
tacho while starting - if it regularly goes above 2500 I'll get on to
them again.

Thanks for the advice

An occasional blip is not a problem, as long as RPM comes back down.
