My car idles extremely high (by that, I mean the sound it makes. It races when I start it. As long as it's in park the engine races, when I shift out of park, it stops). Recently it has also started acting up when I'm taking off from being stopped. It hesitates alot as I accelerate, revs up, and finally shifts. It doesn't really jerk when it shifts, but it does hesitate quite alot and it worries me. What could it be? I've checked the transmission fluid already.

Have a trans guy see if there are codes for it or maybe a slipping clutch inside. Cleant throttle plate on both sides with choke cleaner and iac hole.

It's an automatic, not a manual. Also it makes a whirring noise when it's struggling to accelerate, from under the hood
