    Hi tony martino, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? I'm assuming it has a twist-grip throttle control (like a motorcycle?). When you turn it, do you feel any resistance? "Will not Rev up" leads me to suspect a problem in the linkage (throttle cable) between the throttle, and the carb. If there is no connection between the two, nothing's gonna happen. I'm surprised it starts at all....

I would start by cleaning the carb , take the float bowl off and blow out the jets .

I have a Rascal 200..was working after you go forward and let go of the throttle. goes in reverse itself. .is there a throttle adjustment?

I had a similar problem on my Pride Legend scooter, it would
creep back in reverse if you let go of the throttle. The FWD/REV spring tensioned throttle pot inside was "off center"causing it to activate in reverse when it should have stayed put with the electric brake energized.
I had to replace the throttle pot assembly. Not sure if yours
is similar, but I would suspect it might be.

Rascal scooter

Could be the Throttle Pot or Speed Pot. The levers will change the resistance of the throttle pot. The speed pot feeds the throttle pot.
Move the speed pot while pushing the lever forward. If it works could be the speed pot has a dead spot on it. Also check wires loose and a mechanical issue with the throttle pot and the springs.

When i go and start my scooter,the rpm`s rev all the way up,but stays in one spot,without even using the throttle down.

A bad/stuck throttle cable. Best to replace it, but you need to know what exactly the problem is.
A friendly bike shop should be able to tell whether the trouble is in the cable, the hand control, or at the engine.
They may even have a reasonably-priced cable that will fit, as the cables are almost identical between some bikes and some scooters.

There maybe an issue with fuel flow/delivery. Check the operation of the fuel tap and connecting hose. Has the fuel filter been serviced/replaced? Carburetor float level may not be set correctly, jets maybe dirty and blocked, these are all simple fixes if you are handy with some tools. Otherwise a relatively cheap fix by a dealer or more knowledge on the year/make/model of your scooter. Cheers.

Engine starts and idles, give throttle, revs, bogs, revs, bogs

Check for a loose connection by the carb. Sounds like its sucking air.
