My RPMs are Revving up while the jeep is in park. What could be a possible solution to this problem?

Thanks,


Jonathan

ONE COMMON POSSIBILITY IS YOU HAVE A VACUUM LEAK OF SOME SORT

LOOK AROUND FOR A HOSE OR PLASTIC TEE OR A RUBBER BOOT TO BE PULLED LOOSE/ CRACKED OR BROKEN

WHILE IT'S RUNNING, YOU MIGHT EVEN HEAR A "HISSING SOUND"

THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO LOOK FOR ONE HARD TO FIND

THIS NEEDS TO BE DONE OUTSIDE, WELL AWAY FROM YOUR HOUSE AND OTHER VEHICLES, A FIRE EXTINGUISHER IS A MUST---A WET TOWEL MIGHT BE STEP ONE, BEFORE YOU DEPLOY THE EXTINGUISHER, IF YOU HAVE A TINY FLARE-UP. BE SAFE!
