I'm not sure if you've found the answer to your question yet...but i'm having a simlar problem with my car it could possibly be the Throttle Position Sensor. Simple explanation from what I understand it tells the engine how much your pushing on the gas pedal and if this peice is off it can send misreading to the engine causing high idle. I replaced it in my car and it works fine now. Park was $30~ at Auto Zone.

Check that there is nothing caught on the throttle cable or around the throttle body or up under/above the gas pedal. it can happen that things get caught and do not let the throttle close all the way... my friend had a walnut stuck under the throttle cable making her car rev way up.

Losing power going up hills


sounds pretty normal. what speed do you try out the passing gear? anything above 35-45 mph and it will feel like neutral. Passing gear is actually only 1st gear. When you press down the pedal, it forces the transmisson to shift into low gear.

My alero idles fast


Usually a sign of a faulty idle air control valve, a sticky throttle plate, or a vac leak.
The computer uses the control valve on the throttle body to control idle speed by regulating how much air enters the throttle body and intake.

2000 Alero idles low and dies when stopped.


How does it idle when you first start or idle when hot.
On the top of the air intake tube there is a small screw which should when screwed in speed up the idle and if it dosent work or it idles fine when cold or warm at idle then its your GEARs are binding up and there's not to much you can do about that ........sorry
