Why would a cold idle speed be 1500rpm when it's hot outside? on 2000 Toyota 4Runner

It's a 90 degrees out every day. The light came on and the code read- rich mixture problem. There isn't any gas smell from the air filter. I bought a new gas cap. May have to get new o2 sensors. The intake housing coupling (the accordion one)cracked and was repaired with black silicone.
