Question about 2003 Pontiac Grand Am
Sometimes when i drive my car for a long distance away from the house my RPM gage will go up, and when i let off the gas petal the car will pull of kind of fast as if im on the gas petal, and when i get to a parking lot to turn the car off soon as i place it in park the hand will go up between the 3000 and 4000. What could be the problem??
There are a couple possibilities for this. One, the IAC (Idle Air Control) motor may be bad. But Ive also seen this happen when the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) goes bad. However, when the TPS goes bad there is usually some changes in the way the car shifts (automatic tranny), delayed shifts, hard shifts, etc.
