The rev counter goes up when in park or neutral and when driving seems like something is stuck and doesn't decrease in speed when I take foot of excelerator cable. I don't think is the cable could it be something else.
Do you
have the same problem?

Try cleaning out the idle air control valve and test the throttle position and mass airflow sensors

You will need a repair manual to test it and also locate these components
