When the ignition is turned on the car revs high. Once it revved so high the engine turned off instantly. Recently, after I had driven to a store, shopped and returned to the car, It seemed to start okay, but I realized right away as I tried to drive off that the engine was revving too high. If I tried to go over 30mph, it would rev really high. I drove home, slowly; turned off the ignition; waited a few minutes; turned the engine back on; drove around the block and it seemed normal again. This problem didn't start until I had a shop replace the starter in the car some months ago. Could they have left something loose or mal-adjusted? It seems as if the trottle is sticking. What do you think is going on? Is car safe to drive on freeway?
have the same problem?
