Question about 1996 GMC Jimmy
There are a few different causes that would give you that symptom. A worn Throttle position sensor (tps) would cause erratic revving, and also a stuck throttle cable/body as well. Take a quick look at the throttle body and move it by hand to watch the cable action, this will quickly tell you if it is the problem. The kickdown cable may be stuck too. The tps can be check with a voltmeter to see if it is within spec and adjusted accordingly. Any of these problems would be any easy/cheap fix for a mechanic if you cannot do it yourself. If everything checks out, then you may have a bad ECU.
