Question about 2002 Hyundai Accent

Open Question

2002 hyundai accent revvs itself up

The rpms race to the extreme while idling in park. The revving conitnues so I usually shut the engine off or put the car into drive or reverse and it stops revving. It passed smog check, strangely, but its rpms went so high during the smog check I thought my car would explode. It has problems shifting gears when I need it to accelorate as well. When at a stop, I have to press down pretty hard on the brake to keep the car from surging forward. I have to slowly decelorate the car to come to a stop or else doing it quickly will cause the engine to shut off while driving. I have had the Throtte positining sensor replaced, so I know it can't be that.

SOURCE: My Hyundai Accent GL is beginning to idle to high, when driving

I think I would seek a different opinion from a shop that has a good reputation. This sounds like 'make-work' to me. We have several shops in our area that are known for doing the same thing! Service costs are high enough with trying to gouge someone. Good luck!

It sounds to me like either your fluid level is very low (in which case, you need to find out why) or your transmission is toasted and it needs an overhaul.

All of a sudden my engine is revving when in park (1995 Volvo 940)


How high do the RPMs go up? It could and usually is your idle air control valve(IAC). In the 940, it is not bolted into the intake, rather it bolted elsewhere underneath the intake and two rubber vacuum hoses connect it to the engine intake. If these hoses are ruptured, the your engine will rev up at idle. Also it could just be the IAC itself malfunctioning.
