You may try replacing the throttle cable for it maybe a little rusty causing it to stuck up. you may also try greasing up the accelerator so it will have a play . hope this helps

Could be the throttle blade is sticking (clean with spray cleaner) or cable itself may be sticking. Unhook cable from throttle to see which.

My motor races to 3000 rpm's when starts and keeps raceing


Sound like you might have a large vacuum leak allowing un-metered air into the engine, either that or your throttle body might be physically sticking open. Possibly a frayed throttle cable.

Rpm goes 5000 after running a few miles


OMG, its got the Toyota Disease. next is Medial and lawyers.

i think you mean to post with foot off the the throttle, in say DRIVE
the engine races to 5000 RPM , total idle failure,
bad idle controls,
bad idle can happen on any car and can be caused by 2 things.
and is dangerous, (you can cut the key to stop any engine)

1: the throttle is really stuck. check the linkage end to end.
2: the IDLE control valve, ISC is stuck open. clean or replace it.

the cars ECU does all it can to prevent this, but can not help
if there are hard failures. ISC or throttle linkages failure.
there is a throttle return spring too, that can break (very rare)
the throttle bore can get so dirty that it can stick open.
on some cars, NO ENGINE STATE
Speed density engines, (MAP) will race for ANY VACUUM air leaks
to the intake plenum , (cracked hoses, etc)

Gas pedal gets stuck and keeps the car going cant stop without turning the car off


dont drive it. find the cause and fix it now.
Hot and cold engine or BOTH>?
1995 Tracker, no tranny , no 4wd , on engine options stated.
Exact high RPM in neutral, not stated...... 1500 is normal cold.
keeps going in Neutral. (nah , you have 5 ways to stop any car.
key, hand brake, foot brake and neutral. and with 4wd, 1 more neutral.
keep that in mind driving any car.
this car has up to 3 throttle cables that can stick. and more!

1: floor mats hit the pedal>? ala. Toyota style (lawsuits)
2: the three cables are, throttle. , cruise and A/T transmission kick down cable. if car is M/T and no cruise it has 1 cable.
so disconnect it, throttle fixed? (disconn,. 1 by 1, bingo?

no cure?, then its not the pedal , you meant just high idle.
yes, replace the cable or bad parts three.
ok say its not the cables.. (tests proved that)
the 95 came with 2 engines, 8valves and 16valves,
they work differently (8v love so race, 16v loves to stall)

1: ISC Stuck open, common.
2: 8v, any air leaks at all , will cause super high idle speeds.
3: throttle valve in the throttle body is stuckopen (gunk) or the return spring broken (very very rare the latter,in fact never heard of one breaking)
4: IAC (thermal idle control stuck open ,(my 97 was). and lots more.
5: on the 16v it takes 2 failures. to make high idle.
gross rich running engine (cold engine its normal) and any air leak
once hot the engine can not race unless there is huge overfueling
and an air leak.
6: the 8v has this device on the side of the throttle body.
called a dash pot. its just a fast idle vacuum servo.
if stuck open the engine will scream full time....
7: ECU stuck in limphome, can cause too high idle speeds.

we need to know which engine
http://www.fixkick.com/find-parts.html
8v or 16v first.
then does the idle race hot or cold or both (engine temperatures)
if it races , then how fast?, RPM the dash tachometer tells you that.

it can be as simple as a 50cent hose cracked.
to a dead ISC. (idle speed control) IAC is thermal idle air controller.
the IAC must be closed on a hot engine,
if the the engine never gets hot,it will scream full time.

Have a '95 Windstar. Was traveling about 45 mph today and the rpm gauge continued to stay where it was and the brakes barely stopped the car, while the engine continued to race as if still moving at 45...


There is more to the throttle then just the pedal. The cable at the other end by the throttle body could have been stuck or the throttle position sensor had an issue.

2000 Chryler Cirrus - engine races all the time


Either the throttle body is being held open by something or the idle control valve is stuck open. Check where the throttle cable hooks to the throttle body, make sure the cable is not caught on something.

Once car is turned on the engine races full rpm s gas pedal has to much play and stays down to the floor .could it be a cable problem?


Coud be a cable problem or a stuck TPS (throttle Position Sensor) Check for binding linkage with the engine off operate the accelerator while someone watches the action to make sure it goes back to the original poing with no binding or sticking Replace the accelerator Cable or Lube any sticking linkage with liquid wrench,
