When I start the car it runs at 1500 rpm. if I kick the gas pedal and release it immediately it lowers down to 1000rpm. Now when I put it into drive the engine revs up to 2500rpm once again and stays there until I put it into neutral and then kick the gas pedal once again, but now it runs at 1500 rpm. If I put it to drive once again then it tries to race to 5500 rpm so then I put it back to neutral.

Can you help resolve this issue?
