Do this.Remove the air tube from the throttle body.Get some carburator cleaner or equivalent.With one hand,open the throttle,at the same time spray the throttle plate with the cleaner.Clean it well.You might get a missfire for a little while when you start the engine.IT will clear out.This will do the trick.

The idle is sticking on park

High idle speed is usually caused by a sticking idle air control valve or a vac leak. The computer controls idle speed by how much air is allowed into the intake manifold.
is the check engine light on ?

The throttle body needs cleaned its gumed up.Take throttle body off and spray and wipe the inside of the throttle body with a can of throttle body cleaner this should free it up.If that didn't help then you need a throttle position sensor.Reset the computer after any sensor is changed.

Throttle sticking on 2001 dodge intrepid

I would spray some WD-40 on the throttle cable, also, you may need to clean the throttle body and throttle plate, sometimes there will be some carbon build up that will make the throttle plate stick in the throttle body, Gumout and an old toothbrush works good.

How to clean 2001 chevy suburban 1500 throttle mechanism

Buy a can of Throttle body cleaner and follow the instructions on the can, make sure you buy Throttle body cleaner. Carburetor cleaner is to corrosive to the gaskets used in the Throttle body's. The basic way to use the Throttle body cleaner is to just spray it into the Throttle body, working the Throttle blade and making sure that you also clean the Idle Air Control passage ways. As long as you follow the instructions on the can, you will have no problems. Just note that different Throttle body cleaner products will have different instructions, so read before you use. Just pay attention to the throttle blade, it's common for Carbon to build and can cause the blade to stick from time to time.

Good luck and keep me posted.

My 2001 Tahoe will not stay running when I give it

I have a 2K1 Tahoe that was doing the same thing. It wouldn't idle properly and would die at stop lights. The check engine light would come on once in a while for a few seconds. I took it to a dealer and they removed and cleaned the soot like residue and other build up from the throttle body. That fixed the problem and I haven't had any problems since then. Hope this helps.
