I have 03 acura cl type s, I just replaced the throttle

Customer Question

i have 03 acura cl type s, I just replaced the throttle body, because the plastic pulley broke and would no longer pull one of the cables. Well now it is idling very high, around 4000 rpms, and when I put it in park, it just drives without me even touching the gas pedal
