If you see these and know them, let me know. I'm off to check the site as well.

Thanks!!
P0221 - Throttle position sensor, Which will definitely be causing your RPM to jump like that. Cheap fix.
P1632 - Throttle valve code, Which is most likely caused by the bad position sensor.

I would recommend changing out the throttle body position sensor first to see what happens. Like I said it's cheap and easy to replace. That way you cover the cheap fix first before getting to serious.
