Customer Question

Q: run away idle/engine speed
asked by Tim M on August 12, 2016
When I start the van it idles fine until I put it in reverse or drive, and then when I return to park or neutral the idle is very high. I can shut the van off and restart it and it's fine until I put it in gear again. It also accelerates on it's own when driving, like the cruise is on. Turn key off/On back to normal for 30 sec.
A/C on also has same like effect
Replaced TPS and ICM
My car has 60000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
