Trying disconnecting the battery again this time for 10 to 15 minutes. Then reconnect and see if it clears the problem.

2004 chevy malibu high rpms and revving all by itself


Have the engine checked for vacuum leaks, that will cause a high idle speed. As a 35 year veteran of auto repair I can tell you that engine flushs are a 100% waste of your hard earned money.

After my 03 jeep liberty warms up to normal, the idle begins to fluctuate until it goes down to 500 rpms than wants to shut off but revs itself up to stay on, now when I am in park and rev the rpms up it...


It's not a gas pedal, it's an air pedal. Fuel injected engines are all about air flow at idle. take off the intake snorkel and check out your throttle body. You may just need a new throttle position sensor, or the Idle solenoid that regulates idle air flow is stuck. The computer will try to compensate, but it can only do so much.

Replaced battery and alternator in my 2000 Honda accord and now when I turn it on the engine stays revved up at 4000 RPMS what could this be


When the battery is removed, the computer looses it memory. On some cars, you have to drive the car a few miles to relearn everything.
If that is not the case, there is a vac leak or the idle air control valve is stuck open.

The engine has recently started to idle very fast when the car is in park, and tapping the gas pedal doesn't help.


Examine all the vacuum hoses as one most likely has cracked, usually at a bend or
has come completely off. This will cause very high idle.Hope this helps.
