2006 Saab 9-5 Q&A

2006 Saab 9-5 Question: The car is in motion and the engine suddenly goes faster.

It doesn't happen at slow speeds just in 4th and 5th gear and when I take my foot off the accelerator it still continues and even goes faster. -
Answer 1
Sounds like the throttle body is not backing off and getting stuck in position. Need to clean the throttle body and see if this alleviates the issue. -
