This sounds like a dangerous situation. it is most likely your idle air control device. There should be a Check Engine Light/Service Engine Soon Light on, yes? Have your car scanned and the problem traced down. You could kill yourself and/or some one else!! Be careful!!! I recommended that you have your car SCANNED first. Replacing parts with out a firm diagnosis usually does not fix the car. You need to have a good diagnostic scan first and foremost. Good Luck!

I Changed the Idle Air Control, And the Trottle Position sensor,and I still have the same problem,but now it sound like the trottle is stuck wide open. I cant drive it in its condition. From start up the Idle is up to 4000 + RPM, and yes the Service Engine light is on, I get a message to Service Emission. Thanks again for any information.
