    It is possibly an accelerator cable issue where the cable is frayed and sticking. On Celica's with cruise control I think the cable runs to the right front headlight area to the cruise control actuator cold have a problem with the cables there. Car has an idle air control motor under the throttle butterfly housing that could be stuck, low coolant level can cause high idle speed.
