Good day all,
I am hoping someone could give me their thoughts on a problem I am having on my car. I have had two accelerator problems in the last month. One is where the car will accelerate by itself to the point where if I put in the clutch, it will try to redline. The other time it was "waffling" back and forth from 1000 and 2000 RPM, while driving (on snowy roads, which just made the back end constantly buck out). The waffling makes me think it's not a stuck throttle plate and I don't think a faulty ICV can make a car redline in neutral. I also have no vacuum leaks as I dosed the engine in "quick start" and it did not react in the slightest. Does anyone have an idea what could cause this?

Thank you,
Tim

While the car was revving up and down, I looked under the hood and the throttle plate was completely closed, so I don't think that would be the problem.
