If your intake air control valve is sticking, your car will rev to 3000 to 4000 rpm and drive down the road at about 50 mph with out touching the gas pedal. It is next to the throttle valve and is held on bu three small screws. New it is $450, used Probably $40. However if the throttle body is just dirty. Remove the hose from the air cleaner to the throttle body and hose it down with throttle body cleaner. You may have to drive it and repeat the procedure a second time. But you should not have to do more than remove the rubber tube and spray it holding the flap open.You may want to supplement this cleaning with a bottle of Chevron Techron in the gas tank to clean the rest of the fuel system and engine.

The throttle body needs to be cleaned, grime in this area prevents the throttle plate from closing completely and allowing air to enter, making the air/fuel mixture lean. Make sure to clean the front and back sides of the throttle body. Also, disconnect the battery during the cleaning process to allow the computer to reset and relearn to the cleaned throttle body.
