My car has 160000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You will need to have the battery disconnected and wait 10 minutes and then relearn throttle idle. Before you do this have computer codes checked and cleared. You may have got throttle body cleaner into the throttle position sensor and caused damage to sensor. You may need to replace throttle body.
