AS I WAS ACCELERATING, AND GET TO AROUND 40 OR 45MPH, THE CAR WOULD LUNGE FORWARD AND THE SPEED WOULD SUDDENLY INCREASE EVEN IF I WASN'T PUSHING THE ACCELERATOR. THEN I WOULD TRY TO SLOW DOWN THE CAR AND IT WOULD BE JERKING AND WOULD COME TO A STOP FINALLY, BUT THE RPM WOULD BE TO OVER 4,000 OR EVEN 5,000. IT WOULD DO IT FOR A FEW MILES THEN SUDDENLY GO BACK TO RUNNING NORMAL. I ALSO NOTICED THE CRUISE CONTROL IS NOT WORKING SINCE THE CAR STATED DOING THIS. I TOOK IT TO A MECHANIC AND ALL THEY COULD FIND WRONG WITH THE CAR WAS THAT THE THROTTLE BODY PLATES WERE COVERED IN GUNK AND THEY CLEANED THEM, AND I NEEDED TO REPLACE MY IDLE AIR INTAKE VALVE WHICH I HAD BOTH DONE. FROM TIME TO TIME THE CAR WILL STILL ACCELERATE SUDDENLY WITHOUT WARNING, AND I AM AFRAID I AM GOING TO EITHER BLOW THE ENGINE FROM THE HIGH RPM'S OR RUN INTO SOMEONE IF I CAN'T GET THE CAR SLOWED DOWN IN TIME.
