Thanks for the reply,
Of course, I turned the car off. However, when I turned the ignition after putting it in park my rpm increased dramatically to 7000 rpm. Again, my foot was NOT on the pedal, nor was there anything causing this to happen.

I have researched this problem and saw many results for a possible "bad TPS" or a problem with the 'throttle control module'. Evidently, the valve (?) is not opening or closing as it should. I just need to know what to do without breaking the bank for repairs. In fact, I just need the basic information, parts? labor? is this an easy fix?

Throttle linkage, you say? Please elaborate. I've only had this car for 4 months, therefore I am steadily doing my research on how to maintain such a vehicle.

Thank you again,


Theola
