My 2001 GMC Sierra...

My 2001 GMC Sierra 4x4 with a 5.3 l motor starts and then immediately revs so high I have to shut it dow.

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Brand new battery and lights work

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sierra yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. Put a throttle position sensor on. No help there.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Has headers.
