STARTED THE ENGINE THIS MORNING AND THE ENGINE RACED TO OVER 4000 RPM, HAVING NEVER TOUCHED THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL TODAY. SHUT IT DOWN AND STARTED IT AGAIN - SAME THING. NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE ON THIS CAR. I LOOKED UNDER THE HOOD AND A BEIGE COLORED PLASTIC GUIDE FOR THE CRUISE CONTROL CABLE HAD A CHIP OUT OF THE SIDE OF THE GUIDE ENTRY POINT SUCH THAT THE CRUISE CONTROL CABLE AND SHEATH WERE CAUGHT OUT OF ALIGNMENT IN THE SLOT OF THE CHIP IN THE GUIDE. I PULLED OUT, STRAIGHTENED AND RESET THE CABLE, SHEATH AND GUIDE AND, AGAIN STARTED THE ENGINE. PERFECT IDLE. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS IF IT WERE TO HAPPEN WHILE DRIVING! I WON'T DRIVE THIS CAR UNTIL I KNOW IT'S RESOLVED. DO YOU NEED PICTURES? I DON'T SEE ANY RECALL FOR THIS HERE...
