    i would look for and vacuum hoses that may have a hole in it or are disconnetcted, if you cant find a leak, try spraying crab clean around the intake area, and anywhere you hear the hissing, be careful, carb clean is extremly flamable

High idle unless driving in gear, but if clutch is pushed in or car is in neutral rpm goes up to 2900

run fault codes to check for accelerator position sensor problems . Check for vacuum leaks. If cable accelerator then check that the return spring on the end of the cable is attached and not missing.

1997 Chevy Camaro V6 I have posted about this once already today but I want to give more information and hopefully a more accurate response. The vehicle is under reving while idling in drive or any other...

A flashing check engine light indicates active engine misfire. There should be codes set for these conditions. It could be low fuel pressure, but if you have not replaced the spark plugs and wires, I would look there. Failed ignition coils or ignition module can be culprits. Also plugged exhaust (catalytic converters) could be to blame as well. To test the catalytic converters, remove the oxygen sensors between the engine and converters and go for a drive. You can also unbolt the converters and run open exhaust. It will be loud, but if performance improves and normalizes, your exhaust is plugged and you will need to replace the converters.

Probably a failed idle air control or cold start valve.
If in the US or Canada, go to any chain auto parts store and ask them to do a code check on your car (free) and it will probably tell you which part has failed.
