2001 Elantra- High Idling Speed Sign In

I have a 2001 Hyundai Elantra with 63,000 miles, automatic. It's been meticulously maintained. However, recently the car has been idling at around 1500-2000rpm. Today, after driving, I parked the car and let it idle for a few seconds. All the sudden it started revving up to over 4000rpm. It was as if a ghost had been pushing on the gas peddle. Any ideas on what could be the problem? Thanks!

Egad Zukes!! That's nothing short of dangerous! There should be an idle speed motor at the throttle body that is getting bad info. I'm guessing from your post that this isn't just a sticking cable.

DON'T WAIT!! Please let us know what the fix was for the world to know, I don't! T

Do you think this could be the Throttle Positioning Sensor?

It could be and if you think you have time with this just start throwing everything out.

If you think you can handle a car a 4000 RPMs when you don't wan't that it's your call but please don't be the car behind me in traffic, T
