You might check for air leaks at the air intake as the sensor would go crazy if there is one. Try spraying some carburetor cleaner while it is running and if the engine starts to increase you have found a leak.

It has a low oil sensor that will disable the ignition if more than a quart low . It could be a bad ignition switch, I just had to replace one on a Ford bronco that was doing the same thing. Also it is probably time for a fuel pump ( fuel starvation)

Sounds like a Temperature sensor is malfunctioning, or maybe the o2 sensor/lambda sensor. get a multimeter and check the sensors around the engine for open circuits.
Its most likely (from exp) that it is a Temp Sensor.
There are two heat sensors, one for drivers information (connected to the dashboard) and one to tell the ECU what settings to run the engine with.
Its not the fuel pump.
That would result in fuel starvation.
This soulnds like the ecu is trying to compensate for a crazy value given by the temp sender.
