the RPM's up to around 3000 and  stays there for about 15 seconds.  Then it 
down to around  800.  The throttle does not move at all while this is

No that is not right.  The car should start, then typically it will  cycle up 
and down for a few seconds (say from 600-1000 rpm) while the fuel  system is 
in warm-up mode, then it should settle down to around 700 rpm.
