AaronM Posted August 28, 2004 Report Share Posted August 28, 2004 Hi, Yesterday I went to go get some gas. I turned on the STS and it reved up to about 2100 RPMs on the startup, then it slowly went down to 1500. I then restarted it several times, same thing. I popped the hood and sprayed some WD-40 on the throttle accellerator cable thingy. Went back in the car (car off by the way ) and pushed on the gas pedal a few times to get it oiled up. Then, I started it up again and the same thing happened. I decided to take it around the block a few times to see if it went away. I put it in reverse and the RPMs were still at about 1500 . I backed it up and put it in drive, same thing. I took my foot off the gas so it would just cruise along like most cars. I am not sure exactly how fast I was going, but it was faster than normal. I then hit the gas and got into second gear then let off the gas and it slowed down a little but I was still going 20 with no foot on the gas. I went back to my house and shut it off. I then turned it back on and it was back to normal . I then drove it around for about 20 minutes with no problem. Does anyone know what happened? THANKS!
