When i drive my car for about 20 miles it starts jumping.

If the car gets up to operating temperature and then lunges forward and cuts out and then lunges forward again, you should suspect a coil pack failure (coil module defective and not getting spark to one cylinder), a loose plug wire or bad plug wire or fouled spark plug.

High idle car lunges forward

If you have a high idle and lunging...that usually happens when there is a leak on the intake manifold side allowing more air to get in, then the computer senses the increase in air and adds more fuel. There in turn has to be one more failure in the system to allow the idle to run away, may be a tps sensor (throttle position sensor) or something down the line.

Idle trouble

Check your EGR Valve and your IAC. These can and are usually common problems with bad idle and at sometime your car will be hard to start and when you give it gas it will feel like it almost wants to just lunge forward really fast
