Question about 2000 Chevrolet Impala
We just bought this car.... I love it but it idles very high. When you take your foot off the brake the car takes off. When you go to put it in drive, it jumps bc it wants to go. If your foot is not pressed down hard, you will lose it. Even when idleing, it sounds like someone has their foot pressed on the gas. This causes us to go through a small fortune on gas! Also, it has a tinge of smell like its running hot. I dont know if its because of the ideling or what. The thermostat reads fine but I do occasionally hear bubbling under the hood. Please help! I dont have the money to play the guess and elimainate game. Thanks!!!
Mine did that a couple times. i heard it could be the IAC Valve

First thing to do is check under hood for any "hissing" noises, and check all vacuum hoses are connected properly, and not leaking.
