Lancer revving when it gets real hot

When sitting in heavy traffic on and off the clutch my 05 lancer starts to rev it will rev to 2k then 3k and will stay there for a while till I start to drive normal. I can shut the car off and turn it bvack on and it will still rev. It is almost like the throttle cable is being held open when the engine gets really hot. Can anyone please help I took it to the dealer and he wanted to replace an $800 clutch?

I have the same problem and have racked my brain over this it turned out to be the throttle cable sticking.  My guess is that the rubber sleeve is heating up and causing the cable to bind.

Try diconnect the positive terminal for about 30 mins or less for the computer reset it self if that don't work try cleaning the throttle body sensor with caborator cleaner below intake hole do this make the positive terminal is off, then put everything back together and go for a drive see what happen that had worked for good luck!!!.

Car starts missing between 2k & 3K revs when under load


Hi Keith:
When an engine is under load, there is resistance that ultimately is transferred back to the pistons. That means that cylinder pressures are increased, and resistance to a good spark at the plug electrode air gap is Increased.
The first thing that I would do would be to remove the spark plugs, check their condition, check for a hot blue spark, then replace them and give it a try.

Engine overheats and revv's awkward


do you have fuel lines near any hot surfaces like manifolds? sounds to me your fuel is getting hot and vaporising. Try fuel pump or relay. Coil or igniton module next most likely.

Over-revving in 5th at 75mph all of a sudden


If the car rev'd up but did not speed up at the same time the clutch is starting to slip. Check the adjustment and recheck driving. When the clutch starts to wear this is how they act, only most people ignore whats happening and keep driving till adjustments won't fix it and the clutch has to be replaced. Have adjustment checked and keep an eye on it and hopefullty you won't need a clutch yet.

Overheats at idle only, fine at speed or higher rev


Generally the bottle will give you some idea on level but if you have a cap on the radiator, that's the best place to check or fill. (only open cold) Also make sure that if you have an electric fan, that it's coming on when hot. Your computer also aids in cooling by advancing/retarding timing. It may not be.

Merc 190e


Ok there is a number of things that will stop it from revving past 3k from your description I would check the ignition timing for advance mechanical and vacuum .I don't know when you experience the fault or eg while driving or just free reviving in Neutral .
BTW 190e does not have limp home mode so there is a real problem. Hope this helps

Engine high rev at stop and slowly goes to idle speed.


I've got Hyundai Lantra 1.6 year 2000. It's take time to start when it's hot. When I start my car it revs at about 2k-3k rpm. It also does it when I come to a stop. When I come to a stop it will stay at a higher rpm than that of idle speed. It drives ok when on freeway but uses more petrol. I have changed the water & petrol pump but no luck
