It is possible that your throttle cable could be getting stuck causing the throttle to stay open. I would recommend visually inspecting the cable and lubricating it if necessary to resolve this issue. If this does not fix the problem, I would recommend having an engine runs rough inspection performed to determine the exact cause of this issue. Consider YourMechanic as this inspection can be completed at your home or office.
