Q: I have a 2009 Saturn aura 2.4l 4cyl when I start the car the rpms go to 4,000 without my touching the gas pedal.

asked by on

When I start the car the Rpms rise to 4,000 and stay there. The rpms drop down to normal when the car is in reverse or drive but rise when in park or neutral. I cleaned the throttle body and the problem continues to persist. As it is it’s unndrivable. When I press down on the gas while the car is in drive the rpms shoot up to 4,000 again. There’s no check engine light or anything

My car has 135000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
