A few things come to mind here.... i know that this is a very uncomfortable situation to be in sort of like playing Russian roulette while driving as you don't know when the next event will happen and how it will affect you and others, so here is what i would do:
First static test the accerleration pedal cable snapping it open and closed(have a partner in the car pushing the gas pedal down and releasing it while you are obsrving the action) Be sure the car is turned off !!
While observing look for anything that may be the cause of the gas linkage "sticking" in a fast idle position and not allowing it to come to a normal rest position, spray pretty heavily the whole mechanismn that has anything to do with the gas pedal movement using WD 40, this is great stuff even good for rubber and electrical preservation!!
Also have someone scan the computer for a possible code leading you to find a possible sensor that may be defunct causing this.
Try a good product of fuel injector cleaner and perhaps a tank of high test to try to cleanse the interior of the fuel supply an area that you can't see such as the IAC motor which has a lot to do with the idle and can and does go bad, also a possible TPS code(Throttle Positioning Sensor).... however a computer scan "should" detect this. Auto Zone/Discount Auto, etc. does these scans and gives you a print out of whats possibly wrong all for free!!
Be certain also that the cruise control device is not left on and possibly causing the erratic idling at times. Spray with WD 40 also around the servo etc to clear possible grease jamming controls.
If you can't detect anything then I would suggest taking the vehicle in to a reputable shop and have them test it out allow them at least 1 hour diagnostic time and see what they come up with it sounds a bit risky to let this problem slip away.
I hope this helps

At a stop the jeep want to shift or lunge forward

If it is dropping out of gear and back in at stops, this could just be low fluid. If the fluid is good, look at cleaning the inside of the throttle body, to include the back of the throttle valve. Build up clings here and air restriction can cause the IAC motor to do funny things.

When you apply brakes the vehicle stops then lunges forward

your brake pads could be low and this causing this issue... Replace the pads.. There should be about 1 CM of "meat" on both the inner and outer pad

Now, this problem only seems to happen intermittently. I have a 95 S-10 and recently when I've started it, it idles high and revs even though I'm in park. Sometimes it will even out when I've...

same thing happened to me, i do know my s 10 durango's problem was with the intake gaskets etc and the carburator, and the timing was off, i got the carb rebuilt and an overhaul put on it, its just timing issues, when you start and it high idles, tap the gas after a min of it being started and it'll slow down a lot and be normal, it high idles after being parked a while to warm up is what my mechanic told me mine was an 84, is yours carburated or fuel injected?? take it to a mechanic and get a diagnosis that would be your best bet, and about two months after mine doing the same the engine blew on me and it was three grand to fix, so i sold it, and it bley black smoke worse than a diesel, and it was gas, and you might get a hard knocking sound soon too, if you drive it really hard, is it a 2.8 L V6?? thats not a very good engine design anyhow, its the same as my s 10 if it is, any it'll probe die soon, happened to my friend the exact time that mine did and in all the same stages, but we drove like dumb teenagers, it was just last year, best of luck

Can will drive in reverse, when put into drive it dies.

if you put it into drive with your foot of the brake will it keep running?

Does it feel like you forgot to push in the clutch if it where a manaul transmission?

Does it try to lunge forward right before it dies?

If the answer is yes to any of these than I am betting that the TCC solenoid is stuck. This is keeping the torque converter in the transmission locked up as a solid link between the engine and transmission. This normal happens at highways speeds.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

When was the last time the brake fluid was flushed? Spongy/unresponsive brakes can sometimes be due to moisture/air in the brake lines. You can take the wheel off and get someone to push the brake peddle and see if the brake caliper is moving at all. If it is moving, but not enough to stop the wheel, I'd recommend flushing the brake fluid. If the caliper is not moving at all, it could be the caliper itself (but its very unlikely that both would go bad at the same time)
