You have a mechanical bind. Disconnect the main linkage and work it all by hand. Everything should be free and slopy. Aerosol carb cleaner will help, but only when the engine is not running.

It has started to accelerate.up to 35 mph without any pressure on accelerator and revs up to 3 rpm's when idling. could this be a stuck gas pedal? will some WD40 do the trick


the idle control motor could be opening up causing the rpm to increase(acting like a vacume leak),by either sticking or the(ecm)computer, is commanding an increase in rpm.a bad throttle position sensor ribbon could be the problem(must be replaced no repair).if it was a sticking gas pedal then at idle when you move the gas pedal the rpm`s should increase alot.its possible that a vacume leak could cause this like a hose,although this should show up at idle with a high idle.

Idle is high unless I tap the gas pedal


To me this sounds like the return spring on the carby has lost its strengh or your carburator needs a good clean as the throtle linkages could be dirty. I hope this helps.

hello from what you explained i take it theres no check engine lights on what it sounds like is a basic increase on your idle screw get somone to help push pedal down underhood look to see where gas cable pulls back when gas pedals appled have them release slowly now watch where it stops against a set screw that is your adjustment rpm range should be somewhere between 750-900 rpm depending on vehicle if this doesnt solve most likely tps sensor{ throttle position sensor} goodluck
