Sounds like a possible vacuum leak Julie. Spray some carb/throttle body cleaner around the intake tubes/manifold while engine is running. If it sucks it in and the engine responds, you have a leak. Or you could have another idle control issue. Check (or have someone check) the vacuum leaks. If ok, post back and I will give some other things to check.

check for vacuum leaks on hoses and connections as well as check intake gasket for leak by spraying carb cleaner around the gasket mating area,if rpm changes then that is where the leak is.

Have 87 celebrity with 2.5 litre I4 engine,seems to spin flywheel

it sounds like it is slipping. What I mean by this is, if it is a manual transmission, your clutch may be shot and need to be replaced. If its an automatic transmission you might have problems within the tranny. I do not know anything about automatics so I couldn't help you there

I have an 87 Accord with fuel injection that always had a fast idle, and a surging problem when warming up. Both problems went away when I replaced the fast idle valve, which is bolted to the rear of the intake manifold just downstream of the throttle body.
