Alfa-girl: Try this ...
Turn on the ignition and leave it for 90 secs. Don't start the engine, just turn to the first position.
Then turn it off and leave it for 90 secs.
Now start the engine, but don't touch the throttle pedal. Leave it to idle for about 5 mins. It may change but don't worry. Now turn off, restart and go for a run ..
Let us know if that makes any difference.
It could be the MAF, lamdba, idle actuator on throttle, but not likely to be the cam belt.
