SOURCE: wont rev past 4500rpm

I hade this proble on my 86. It may not be your same problem but check the connection plugs on your secondary injectors the heat from the engine worped the connectors preventing a tight fit so they would come loose and at about 4500 rpm the car would bog cause of lak of fuel.. or your secondary injector are bad

Soon as i turn ignition it imediatly revs to 6000rpm then down to stalling out then right back up 6000 violently, doesnt matter if you hit gas peddle or not it happens everytime

This sounds Like your TPS sensor ....(throttle position sensor) when you check this i would also check the throttle body for gunk and debris recommend a good clean even with the new sensor if the dirt is there it could contamanate the new sensor

Engine revs high

I've seen before where the IAC sensor gets dirty. The IAC sensor is located on the top of the throttle body. If you refer to the throttle body as a clock, and picture the egde closest to the front bumper is 6 o'clock then the IAC sensor would be located at 12 o'clock. I think in a 02 GC it should have vaccum lines attached to it, and it's held down by couple of phillp's head screws. (I think) Take it off and clean it with throttle body cleaner until all the black gunk is out of it.
If you are not sure where the throttle body is, find the air filter box under the hood located on the driver's side lower corner. There will be a plastic "tube" going from that box to the top of the engine. Take this tube off and any part that connects to the top of the engine. You will then see the throttle body. It would also be beneficial to clean the throttle body out as well. (It only take a minute and it can only help your gas miliage.) You can find throttle body cleaner at any auto parts store, or Walmart or Target. Let me know if this helps, thanks!
