My 2003 Acura Tl 3.2 engine with 177K miles will some times

Customer Question

My 2003 Acura Tl 3.2 engine with 177K miles will some times race (up to 3500 RPM), after it has been driven for 5 or 6 miles, when it is warm out. If I stop the car, shut off the engine, and raise the hood and let it cool off for 10 to 15 minutes it won't raced till I drive a few more miles. I don't have this problem on the highway. What is causing this?
